Young Man's Face, Old Man's Eyes


Marine Lance Cpl. Andrew Koenig is blessed to be alive after taking a shot to the head. His helmet stopped the Afghan sniper's bullet.

Look at this young man's face, particularly his eyes. That haunted stare reflects the very soul of war. It's something no actor can fake, and it shows just how cheap and hollow are the political slogans that civilians mouth by way of "supporting the troops."

    Very well said. If any of our "leaders" kids were over there getting shot at, I would bet their "patriotic" support for the ever changing, ever redefining "war on terror" would change.
