This made me cry. I'm not sure I could ever be strong enough to read a letter like this addressed to me.

That was amazing, and such maturity for a 19 yr old. Just shows what fighting in Afghanistan does to these brave young people sad and smile

God how unbearably sad.

Just makes me wish we could bring them all home safely today.

I heard his Mum interviewed on the radio on Monday and nearly crashed the car because I was snivelling.

How sad - but how wonderful to have a son that expressed himself so openly and wholeheartedly in that letter he knew would be his legacy.

Read this even though i didn't want to, my db is out there at the moment and due back at Christmas. Trying not to cry but it is such a lovely, lovely letter. The situation is so complicated and it makes you realise that anything can happen out there at any time.
