Tough to imagine his dad having to wake his wife and break that news.

Can you go into more detail if you dont mind? I have this media sensationalized idea of what it mustve been like. But I would like to hear your detailed description of the entire incident.

Particularly what the enemy was like. And if you captured any and how they acted towards you. Id like to hear a first hand account.

Also, were you there with his father when he went to the location?

If it is too much for you to recount, Id understand.

Why does it say they don't know how he was killed?

re: Miss him wanted to post


I was in Iraq when his father was but had no idea he was there. To this day he is the only parent to make it over there non military. They have spoke with some producers about buying the rights but they are worried Baldwin and or Gibson may put a negative spin on the movie we will see. Our platoon has said take the money if they make us look bad we don't care. That is his major concern. Its late I'm not getting into it; just jake was so looking forward to hunting when we got back so hunting season gets me to thinking and the depression sets in.

Goose Six is right. You don't ask questions like that if you have any respect.

Did anyone ask you to be a douche?

eta. and Lake stated that there was a discrepancy in the report given. I took it that he was just asking for the actual account of the events. yet he even said..
