As I get Slightly older (Only 22) It really starts to drive it home how young the lads dying out their really are when people my age and younger die.

It amazes me how many young lads still step into the breach despite the type of negative coverage shown all over the TV at the moment.

My regards and sympathy for this lad, RIP

Thankfully, it has always been so and for the sake of our respective countries I hope it will be in the future. I just hope our respective countrymen are worthy of their sacrifice.

Thanks for your sentiments.

Thank him for his service when you can--he must be quite sharp as they have a long queue and have gotten so selective I would have never gotten had they been so picky years ago.

Tragic, as always. My condolances to family and friends.

Rest In Peace, Marine. Stand guard on Heaven's streets...

Semper Fi.

Rest in Peace,I truly hope that the end result of all this proves worthy of the sacrifice you and so many others have made.There has got to come a time when the world learns better ways to write it's history than in the blood and tears of the victims.
