    Death never crosses the mind of these young warriors - many just teens, feel invincible. And we know this isn't reality in a war zone.

    A friend of my son - a 19 year old - just got back from Parris Island (on leave now) - heading to Afghanistan soon- he was telling me yesterday, "I can't (eff)ing wait to get there!"

    You know the old saying, those who want to go to war the most are those who have never been, I hope your friends son does well.
