My mom knows a woman who works as a social worker. She says she can't get me into the Veteran's Hospital in Tampa, but she might be able to introduce me to a soldier who was wounded in Afghanistan last year.
To be honest, I'm glad that I don't have to go. The war over there doesn't seem like it's winnable. And I'm not sure who the enemy is. I mean, I know it's the Taliban, but I'm not sure how you can tell who they are.
But I respect the sacrifice of our soldiers. And I hope that if I was over there I would accomplish my missions and behave honorably.
If I can interview a wounded vet, maybe he (she?) could help me understand what we're doing over there.
