So I just hear from my Mom, that my sister-in-law called and said that the Red Cross came to her and told her that; 3 of my brothers soldiers where killed in action, while 2 more where injured. But that he's fine.
We think they did that, cuz they don't do that at all, because Eric hasn't had a chance or opportunity to contact us, and this was the only way to keep us at ease.
The big thing about this is, that his heads not in the fight.
My father passed away this last April, and he was stuck in Germany without any way to come home. The last unit he was in got disbanded because the base they were at was closed. But before it closed, he was overcharged on his leave time. So when my Dad passed away, he couldn't come back even WITH fucking Red Cross emergency, because; 1) the unit no longer exists, 2) the guy that he COULD go to, hate him for making him look like an idiot(asshole was standing up during a fire fight, and my brother saved his life by knocking him down so his head wouldn't catch a bullet), and 3) all the fucking suits that are 'organizing' the military have set it up like this now. So he's out there, without any way to deal with our Fathers death, in a fight with all green soldiers because no one else wants to be there, and he can't do a goddamn thing about it.
I want to do so many horrible things to those old crackish fuckers that it ain't funny. But for now, I just need to focus on what I need to take care of, and see what other things we can do to start making the government see that we cannot stay there in that country.
We've fucked it up more than it already was, and the conflict there is religious, which means we have no way of ever resolving it. Best thing to do... let them fight it out. Saves so many more of our peoples lives. I'm just gonna pray for my brother, that he keeps his head cool and on what he needs now.
Still, I have those fuckin' suits.
Edit: I'll edit the mood part of this post later, cuz DA is being an ass wart and won't load the fuckin' options when I click on the goddamn thing.
