A nice submission. I'm not really sure what to say about it. I don't want to insult it, but I was under-whelmed. I think I went into it expecting a gritty war story, as I usually read comments first, but ended up with not much of a story. It is a good illustration of what kind of people it takes to fight a war. *sigh* I might just be bitter because the war in Afghanistan recently hit close to home. The husband of a good friend of mine was killed by a suicide bomber on the 8th and reading about such a senseless war is depressing. You get points for evoking emotion, even if they are unpleasant ones. Good work.
