Hi Guys, Did anyone see the news this evening about the rememberance parade for the guys killed when the Nimrod came down in Afgan a few months back? There was an interview with one of the fallen`s Wife, well it certainly brought it home to me, we swan off on these tours, with not a thougth to our families....this poor girl was saying how she puts her children to bed, and then how quiet the house becomes without her husband. I got out of the Army in 2002, just as all this War on Terror business was starting, in a moment of madness I volunteered to do a tour of Iraq, Queen & Country and all that, was I ******* mad? Luckily I came back without a scratch a lot didn`t. Before seeing this news report, I was thinking that maybe I`d do one more tour, just one more job one more gong, but having seen this and damage I could cause to my loved ones, no sorry but it would be to selfish. I don`t want to push my luck any more, I`ve done 4 tours around the world, is that enough? Am I alone in this thought who knows? BJOW.
