    God Bless this young man and others. Having retired from the Military I feel a part of me dies each time a fellow military person is killed or wounded. Since we can't fight a war like our forefathers, I feel this war and Vietnam was over money, not freedom. May God give comfort to their families and let them know that we grieve also. Hand Salute!
