    My mate has been shot in the head!

    Tonight i get home from work, already fairly stressed out, i sit down to have some tea, start to relax and my Dad comes in and says "Joe... your mate Sam's been shot in the head..." I feel sick, i go a bit dizzy... then start shouting questions at him... He tells me he was in Afganistan (Army) and they came under fire and he got shot in the head... He then reveals that he's ok, just deaf in one ear and he's back in the UK. So i presume it just skimmed him. I then start to well up and almost cry. Even though me and Sam havn't talked for a while he'll always be a mate... I can remember when me and him used to play "army" in my front room, we were in Army cadets together... I just can't believe it... He also got at least one confirmed kill aswell... it just seems so strange that a few years ago we were playing war, now he's living it.

    Hope he gets better mate. Having only just come back from there i know what its like (along with some other members who are forces, mattcoupeturbo being in Iraq at the moment).
    While i was out there, my team visited different Locations and got quite friendly with a group of about 4 marines in Lashkar Gah. A couple of weeks later we found out that one of the lads was in the field hospital and had been shot in the arm. Anyway, we got chatting and he let us know that another one of the guys we got friendly with got killed in a suicide attack a couple of days after we left lashkar gah. It just hit me then (after being there for 4 months) at what sort of shit we were in out there.
