I'm sure that everybody remembers the Marines that got shot and and that one of them died in Kuwait. Well that was my sons unit and for a couple of days I was sitting on pin cushions. Sorry it happened but so glad it was not my son.
I didn't tell his mother about what happened until after the marines had been identified, it was probably wrong of me but at the time I throught why put her throught hours of worry when chances are he was safe. When I did tell her she just let out a sigh of relief and carried on what she was doing, but I know in her heart the fear for our son has probably doubled and will stay that way until he comes home.
