"A soldier could spend years as a member of the army in the states, but it's not until he reaches foreign soil and is under fire that he really realizes the full implication of the conflict. ."Six months at the front or 50 missions over enemy territory changes a man's outlook on life and brings him to a better appreciation of his own country and the good things she stands for" T.
