My gran just rang to tell me that a close friend of both my sisters boyfriends has lost his brother fighting in Iran.

He was shot 3 times.

I never met him myself but met his brother many times and its heartwrenching to think what he is suffering now, the loss of a brother must be devestating.

My sister said he was only deployed a few months ago and her boyfriend (and my opther sisters boyfriend) had both gone out on his 'leaving party'.

Just wanted to pay my respects to him and share my prayers for his family.

Thanks, its strange I feel quite sad, probably because its the reality that so many people have been lost over there, everyone one of them someones son, brother or Daddy

So sad.

Also for all those service people who have been injured and returned to the UK with serious medical problems. And seem to be ignored.

I feel sad every time I hear of another British Soldier losing their life.
Such a waste of a young person and so awful for their families.

It was mentioned on the news, 2 of them were killed but it didnt identify the man we knew, just the other.

Theyre poor families.

It is very sad .My Dh is in the RAF and he flew with the 12 out of the 14 servicemen who died last Sept in the nimrod crash . It brings it home to you when you actually know the people
