Verities of War

By Remy Benoit

  It is the first day of spring here in the States.
  We are at war.

  We have lost some of our own: a marine from the 1st Expeditionary Force, as yet not identified pending family notification, and four of our US Troops as well as 8 from the UK in a Marine helicopter crash.
  They are all family.
