"We weren’t great friends, but buddies. Other soldiers know what I mean."

Babble on.

A reservist in Afghanistan has opened up online about Cpl Boneca, the mission, bitching and morale, and the media.

Normal soldier stuff. There is nothing in his first and last letters as published in the newspapers to suggest he was any more miserable than any other soldier, in any army, in any theatre in the world. It is our right to ***** and complain. A soldier who is not doing either, is upset or distressed and needs attention.

If you don't read anything else today, read this.

Babble off.
