Going past the surface...

A cover of "Call Me Maybe" performed by US Army Infantry Soldiers in Kunar Province, Afghanistan. Original by Carly Rae Jepsen. Directed, filmed, and edited by the troops as a morale boost for our Soldiers here and our families/FRG back home. See you in just a few more months, and thanks for all your support!
Ok - I don't normally go for this kind of 'Daily Morale' kind of thing

But there is something else going on here.
The MASH Method :
'The only way to stay sane in an insane situation - is to act completely crazy'

Some of you reading this will understand completely.

And something else :
"19. The average age of the infantry combat soldier in Viet Nam was 19."

Look at how *young* those soldiers are.


Reguardless of what you think of the involvement of the USA in the Middle East, those young people did not *ask* to be put in that situation.
The politicians elected by those safe and sound at home decided to send them.
'Old men chose - young men die'
Same Same

Get home safe guys...
