That would be moi.
A 19 year old Marine from Long Island was killed in Iraq. I didn't know him but he could have been any boy from Long Island or anywhere for that matter. He was so young. He had so much of life ahead of him. He's somebody's baby. Why the hell did this have to happen? Why did he enlist? Did his family only watch Faux News?
War is hell.
Illegal invasions suck even more.
Don't let your kids enlist.
As far as I am concerned, 18 is the new 14.
Raise the enlistment age to at least 21 so that informed decisions can be made by our young people about their future.
