It is with great sadness that I share with you all the news of our most recent fallen. SPC Christopher Bailey (26) and PFC Sarina Butcher (19) were killed on November 1st when an IED tore through the armored vehicle they were in.
To date, we have lost 14 soldiers in the short 4 months we have been here. It seems like an eternity.
story"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made so and kept so by the exertions of better men [and women] than himself." ~John Stuart Mill, 1806 - 1873
