#2 Holy cow. More cursing the darkness. War is a bitch, bright young people get killed. Sometimes they get killed by the enemy, sometimes they get ahead of the forward edge of the battle area.
Dead is dead.

#3 I thought that at first, but what's the upside for the Army in bringing this up again? They must have something nasty on somebody to take all the rehash of negative publicity and hurt they will cause the Tillmans.

#5 this is NOT what Tillman would've wanted, exactly the opposite message from his financial/career (and yes, life) sacrifice.
Attack of the ankle-biting TET assholes

#6 Bad sh*t happens in wartime. My dad told me that the most dangerous time he ever had was on Okinawa. They told him to take his amphib to a certain sector. He went there, sunset came, nobody else there. The US navy shelled the place all night. They got literally tossed about by shells up to battleship sized rounds. The next morning a patrol came up, and said, "what the hell are you doing here??" Dad said that they were ordered here last night. They said that someone screwed up, the navy shells the area every night to keep the Japs away.

#7 e-Yup. Wrong place, wrong time. Loose lips sink ships. Sometimes you are just part of the diversion.
