    My friend's dad was killed when one of his convoys was ambushed by terrorists. It's so sad to hear about soldiers being killed and never coming home. My friend hasn't been the same since.

    Loosing loved ones on the way,
    Through grim, dirt and soot,

    We departed with pride in our hearts, sure we'd be home by Christmas,
    The Hun was an easy catch, at least that's what they told us.
