We were invincible (We thought)

This is a picture of me when I was young and foolish.   I’m reminded of those days by the deployment this week of my Marine grandson to Afghanistan.   We’ll worry much more about his safety than he will.   When you’re in a combat zone, you take extraordinary precautions, but you do your job.  Your training has prepared you to deal with whatever happens.  You see death, but you think that it’s not going to happen to you.   You are invincible…so you think.
