Hi Spencer, and welcome to the sight. Lesson one, you need to work on your attention to detail a bit. You posted in the (Rangers,Veterans, Ranger Wives/Parents) section instead of the (Future Soldiers and Other Civilians) section.
Civilians, will never understand us. Our desire to be at the worst possible place at the exact wrong time because we hope to make a difference even if it costs us our lives, are incomprehensible to them. And yet it is so. Our prayer is not, please God, let it happen on my day off; but please God, don't let me screw this up.
