Today I finally booted up the old desktop here to try and get back into the techno-loop and catch up with current events,
Popped onto Facebook as you do and scrolled down the "news feed" and saw a lot of posts on a lad I went to school with's wall, he was more friends with my brother but he was a decent chap, posts like "Thinking of you", "Hope you are O.K"...This enticed me to click on his profile and have a ganders,
Reggie has been a military lad all his life (from my memory anyway), living on the barracks and then joining up when he left school, so my instant thought was "shit something has happened to Reg' I scrolled down all the posts until I spotted one from his dad, here's what it read.
"All the Family would like to thank everyone for their kind messages, texts and emails for our Son Reggie who was shot and wounded this morning in Afghanistan.
On the bright side we have been informed he is currently eating a Tuna Sandwich and will be ok! any updates we get we will keep you informed many thanks!
Please remember to support all our Soldiers from his Dad love you Son xo"
People don't realize how dangerous it is out there for our army lads and when something like this happens it drowns you in a realization that these men are literally putting their lives on the line for our well-being, I do not know where he was shot, or how badly he was hurt but a war wound is a war wound, all I do know is that Reggie is a fighter and is on his road to recovery, chicks dig war wounds? eh?
Below are a few pictures of Reggie,
Thoughts and prayers go to Reggie on his road to recovery and to all our soldiers out there,
