Westy Posted on March 20, 2017April 18, 2017 by Administrator The story as it was told. when the listener said “it is hard to imagine”, that is not nessasarily true. It is just hard to convey the utter tragedy of the last night of Westy’s life. The compund was said to be low level. There were no tacticals in the compound. The squad encountered no sentries. Under the cover of darkness, equipped with state of the art technology, this was supposed to be a cake walk. At the internal door the trip was triggered, and the solid timber door exploded outward, shattering the lead member, and incapacitating a second. Thankfully Death and Mercy arrived quickly to end the soldiers suffering. The remaining squad members completed the grizzly task of killing the enemy combatants, carried out the wounded soldier, and shouldered the dead body of their comrade.
