Well one thing is for damned sure, IT'S DEMORALIZING to my battles down range.
Your pretty much saying, srgt! your saying that if I go on this patrol and we go boom, my family isn't getting anything because of this
That's what's being ask right now downrange. I'm pretty sure the commanders themselves are sympathetic about this too, but a mission is a mission
and the American people have seen this and they know this.
I'm surprised I haven't heard reports of soldier disobeying orders to go out on these deadly patrols, seeing as some of them are doing this for
there families....couple of 11B's I know could care less as they sign anybody for that SGLI...
