ok .... so squaddies get it a little easier with the naafi !!!!
my cousin is regularly out in helmand and i have just gone beyond my re-call date having served but luckily never in combat. I have a lot of good muckas who are currently on active service and every time there is an announcement that another soldier has died it grabs me. Not just because it could be one of my friends or relatives but because it is someones friend or relative, just like me.
that picture on the right would be a nice place to stay if you didn't want freedom but some people don't even get that. A friend of mine, Nabaz is from kurdistan and was shot four times saw most of his family and friends killed before being left for dead by the iraqi's. He couldn't fight back unarmed.
the pictures served as another way to portray the original post for the vegetarians of society who don't want to contemplate the blood that has been spilled in the name of "freedom" whilst they sit in their paradise.
They don't just fight for our freedom..... they also fight for those who can't fight for themselves.
