The death of friends

Teflon Don, a recently promoted specialist in Iraq, on the IED deaths of three of his platoon:

"Time is supposed to slow down when you’re in the moment, not when you’re hearing of it. The next four hours are glacial- slower and colder than I could have thought…the breeze twisting dogtags around a rifle like a devils windchime, and carrying once again the plaintive notes of the bagpipe playing Amazing Grace."

A good, although sad, read. Condolences, Don.
