    I'm glad for the ones that made it back but losing someone in that War was really traumatic. I have a son who is almost 18 now and he and I often talk about this.

    He has agreed not to enlist but he had some teenage moments there where he thought the idea was "cool". I got him to work for all kinds of liberal causes instead.

    He wants to work in public service- I really feel for those who came back because they all had to deal with the trauma and little support. I think that's changing.

    I'm sorry for your sister and your loss as well. The best thing we can do is keep it fresh in people's minds as what it really was.

    Peace to you also.
