Perhaps, the children that witnessed this tragic event on American soil..vowed THAT when they grew up, they would enlist in the military. Try to understand the reasoning behind WHY WAS AMERICA TARGETED, while being stationed in an Arab country?? WHATEVER their thoughts are, they are just trying to find answers to heal their tormented hearts, that's all.

That's an unfortunate sequence of decisions. My hope is that children who witnessed the tragedy would first try to gain an understanding of what actually happened and who was responsible and possible motivations. Joining the military isn't conducive to gaining an understanding of anything beyond how to survive in a hostile environment. Unfortunately, those hostile environments experienced by military personnel are created almost entirely because of bad U.S. policy.

I love my country and love our soldiers.What troubles me is the bad shape many come back in.I'll be glad when our children will all be home.
