But you wouldn't be saying that if you had the experiences I had.
Back in 1993, my father was doing his second tour in Bosnia with a UN peacekeeping force. My father was (He is now retired, after serving 25 years) a Signalman (Digital communications). He phoned me on my birthday, only to have the transmission suddenly cut off. I was six and I didn't know what was going on, and was left in tears. It wasn't until years later, when I was 18 that my dad told me that the satellite dish which allowed him to contact me, which was no more then 30 feet from the tent he was in, was hit by a rocket propelled grenade.
