    If he went in October/November then there wasn’t nearly as much activity. He should come in the depth of summer and see how different the weather makes this fight.

    Ask the other parents, like myself, that have lost their son or daughter in Logar Province how boring they think it is! In Memory of SSG Travis Tompkins, 4th BCT 10th Mountain Division. KIA in Logar Province 16 March 2011.

    SFC, U.S. Army, Ret.

    Lee:

    Please don’t insinuate that I somehow mean disrespect to you, other family of servicemembers or servicemembers themselves. I have been to war. It can be quite boring. Many soldiers feel the same way. The fact that war is boring doesn’t diminish the suffering of its victims, of course.

    Also, try to see past your knee-jerk indignation and appreciate the work that I do, and why I do it.

    Regards,

    David
