To: Former Military Chick
Just this Sunday while on a job installing wireless equipment, I met a young man wearing dog tag's with a portrait of a Marine on them. I was curious and asked him about the tags and he told me it was in recognition of his older brother who was killed by an IED a few weeks ago.

Needless to say I was at a loss for words. Our young people are very precious and what made this encounter even more poignant, was this young man's stated desire to enlist and take his brother's place. We need to see this war on terror through to its completion, as quickly as possible, whatever it takes, in order to preserve the lives of our precious youth. Let's get it done and over with.
