Why she went to Iraq

Written by someone on a message board, whose daughter recently returned from Iraq....

My daughter lost an eye, the hearing in her left ear and suffered some nerve damage to her left arm in a grenade attack in Bagdad.

At my gas station, a woman (obviously anti-war and liberal) that was passing through stopped for gas and started a conversation with us. She asked my daughter why she had volunteered for the Army knowing full well she would go to war and if had been worth it seeing as how she was wounded.

Jazz pointed at the woman's daughter which looked to be about 5 or 6 years old and said, "I went for her. You tell me, is she worth it?"

The woman gasped audibly, took Jazz's head in her hands and kissed her on her forehead. She walked out crying.
