Wow, so scary and sad. Drugs drugs drugs ain’t they fun? Ft Lewis has certainly earned some attention lately, hasn’t it?
We have 2 sons who both see only the best parts of Military service. The oldest is almost 16 and I know he would love to join the Military.
I just don’t want him to join. It isn’t my choice and he will do as he wishes. I am not scared he will die like a man fighting the good fight with his buddies overseas...but fall prey to the totally crazy stuff that happens to Soldiers because they are young or dumb or both. Even really intelligent senior officers do unexplainable things that leaves the whole world wondering what on earth is happening to the military. My husband says society is degrading and we are all along for the ride.
Anyway, it will be interesting to see what happened in this incident. Not a good interesting, either...the sad interesting of tragedy and wasted lives and senseless death.
I was onboard a nuclear submarine in ‘70s, don’t miss it a bit.
