  •  Thanks PinHole, (15+ / 0-)

    for sharing this with me. Your story, and many others are what's REAL about war.  See my sig line.

    My father recently passed away, and in going through his things---photos and letters from WWII---I came to understand how HUGE that part of his life was.  But like many of his generation, he didn't talk about it much to us kids.

    But what I took away from settling and tucking away his life in these last weeks, is that there is NO substitute for the testimony of those we send to war.  NO substitute for the bravery, knees knocking and pissing with fear, that we demand from our soldiers.

    It should be enough to give any commander in chief nightmares, and somehow, I just don't see Romney ever haunted by nightmares, ever haunted by a choice better made.
