My brother is leaving for Iraq in January. I am freaking out. It seems to me that the military will let anyone in and anyone go to iraq. My brother is just a baby. He is hardly expierenced with wordly things. He is immature, impulsive, irresponsible, and he is doing this only for the money that comes with it. I personally just think it's a huge risk to send him overseas. We have always had a rocky relationship that didn't improve until a couple years ago. It has recently become strained again. I just am so heartbroken at the imminint threat on his life. I am ocd and highly emotional and may be preggers so this is really getting to me. I actually was listening to a song I had never heard the other day about a man dying in the war and it was a letter that he had written to his family for them to read upon his death. it really got to me. I am so sad for him. Is the military risking his life just for us to impose our beliefs on another country?
