I have to disagree with you. None of the coalition fighting men in Afghanistan were drafted, they all volunteered. Maybe we were misinformed, maybe we wanted to do it for our country, maybe it was 9/11 inspired revenge, or maybe it's the thrill of the fight. If the forces were drafted, like in Vietnam, it would have been a different story. But these guys, who were Royal Marines from the UK and the Marines of 2nd Battalion 7th Marine Regiment from 29 Palms, they're doing it because there's no higher adrenaline rush.
I was on that deployment with those men, and Freddy G Cantu is the Marine Corps equivalent of Danny Trejo.
