    I don’t think you know the nature of how he got in the Army. You don’t know if he was drafted. He may have been born in the US but that doesn’t mean he should give his life for it.

He didn’t join the ranks of their Military. He did nothing to you or anyone else but try and save his own skin. God freakin forbid it. You are a pretty shitty person to say what you did. No one deserves to die for it. I think it’s time you reflect on your own life and what you think you believe. Because I can assure you that attitude won’t make you happy in life, and it sure as hell won’t get you anywhere good in death.
