I was in the Uk Air Force and served my time in Afghanistan. I was fortunate to be in a position where i was inside the wire however after a couple of tours my parents and wife was scared.
I hate and understand the family of thosed lost. My mam had committed to the fact that I was over there and i could not come back. Just before i left we sat down and I explained one thing. "If i dont come home dont blame the government, it was my choice and there are reasons" I sat in Afghan and said to myself for every one of me takes three of them, and so they are restricted to target the places where my family live, or are on holidays. I did this for my family and so asked them to respect my choice and tell the press i was a hero to my counrty not a dead person in a world we should not be. People where there is life there is wrong, I have seen my friends one day and are not there the next...Lets start to respect the bravoury and courage and people who are proud to support our country and not sit on your arses and moan about, most of the time u have no idea how we as military and u as a civilian ever feel. For all those throughout our countries who have been killed, rest in peace, i was with u but yet am so proud of your commitment and love. God bless u and your moaning family!!
