The guy who posted the above message thinks he has an "obligation" to tell everyone around the world how his comrade died. Is he an Army Chaplain? Does he know the other soldier's family on a personal level? What right does he have to write a few words in the event to bring "closure" to the mourning family? Are you kidding me? Leave it up to the commanding officer and/or chaplain and remember to stay in your lane. Good job, buddy. You did nothing to accomplish your goal from 2,000 miles from home.

This is just sad, too young to buy a cigarette or a beer but old enough to be put onthe line and with his life.
LASTWORDS: SOLDIERS SHOULD BE 21 OLD ENOUGH TO MAKE AND EDUCATED DECISION TO ENROLL FOR COMBAT.
