My Nephew

My 18-year-old nephew who joined the military last fall, has finished up training in Mississipi and is now in Texas. I haven’t been able to get a hold of him, but my older sister (his mother) tells me that he wants to go the Gulf. He wants to be a part of the team fighting the war against Iraq. I’m proud of him, but I really don’t want him to go. I know that sounds really selfish, but I just don’t agree with our reasons for going to war. Plus I don’t want to loose another close family member. So as cowardly as it may sound, I’m hoping this war ends quickly so he doesn’t have to go over there.
