This was a bad story for the parents who are now happy that he is alive and with them. This type of story happens all the time in places we read about but don't live in. We are so blessed to live in a country with freedom to enjoy life, even in our most down moments.

For those who have put their own lives on the line in military or other governmental operations, potentiall know what these parents are going through. When you run as a squad or team, everyone on your team is like a family member. You rely on them and also have concerns over them in all of your operations. These operations are never firmly going to be positive in the outcome. However, you train and endure that if you do what you are trained to do, that everyone will come home at the end of the day.

This is hard for normal people in the United States of America to realize how it impacts on people's lives. The people from World War II and Korea didn't talk about it. People from the Vietnam experience did and also didn't talk about it. Bravery.
