Come Home Safe, Lads.
Shamelessly stolen from another ex-soldier.
I think it behoves us all to spare a thought for our sons and daughters in Afghanistan today.
Forget politics, forget pacifism, forget the cost, forget the why's and the wherefore's, forget the rights and wrongs.
Just pray that when this major offensive is over, we get them all back safe and sound.
Whatever your politics, remember that once our forces are committed, we need to stand four-square behind them. Rail at the inept government all you want, but these guys are just doing what they were trained to do.
Come home safe.
