Do you know what my biggest fear is right now?
My biggest fear is Pte Goof coming home from a deployment in Afghanistan. War changes a person. I don’t think there is a single thing on Earth anybody can experience like it. And I know that he is nowhere near facing a deployment right now. I know that the way the government is talking we will be out of Afghanistan before he’s even deployable. But the government has said that before. And even if we are, there will always be another war to fight.
And the thought of Pte Goof going over there. Actually killing people. Seeing the things soldiers see. I’m so terrified that he’ll come home and be such a different person that it won’t work anymore. What if he does go over, and war changes him so much that we find out we can’t be us anymore.
I’m sure I’m being paranoid, but I can’t help it. I scared SHITLESS!
