Oh Man, Too Many Feels...

A nurse took the tired, anxious servicemen
to the bedside. “Year sen is here," she said
to the old man. She had ta repeat the words
several times before the patient' s eyes opened.
Heavily sedated because the pain of his
heart attack he... dimly saw the young
uniformed Marine standing outside the
asdgen tent. He reached am his hand. The
Marine wrapped his toughened fingers
around the old man' s limp ones, squeezing a
message of love and encouragement.
The nurse brought a chair so that the Marine
could sit beside the bed. All through the night
the young Marine sat there in the poorly
lighted ward, holding the aid man' s hand and
offering him wards of lave and strength.
occasionally, the nurse suggested that the
Marine man away and rest awhile. He
refused.
Whenever the nurse came into the ward, the
Marine was oblivious of her and of the night
names of the hospital - the clanking of the
oxygen tanks the laughter of the night staff
members exchanging greetings, the cries and
means of the other patients. Now and then
she heard him say a few gentle words, The
dying man said nothing, only held tightly to
his sen all through the night.
Along towards dawn, the old man died. The
Marine released the new lifeless hand he had
been holding and went ta tell the nurse.
While she did what she had to do, he waited,
Finally, she returned. She started ta offer
words sympathy, but the Marine
interrupted her, "Who was that man?” he
asked.
The nurse was startled, "He was your father,"
she answered.
No, he wasn' t," the Marine replied. ''l never
saw him before in my life."
Then why didn' t yea say samething when I
took you to him?"
I knew right away there had been a mistake,
but I also knew he needed his son, and his
see just wasn' t here. When I realised that he
was tee sick ta tell whether or net I was his
sen, knowing haw much he needed me, I
stayed. I came here tonight to find a Mr.
William Grey. His Son was killed in Iraq
today, and I was sent to inform him, What
was this Gentleman' s Name? "
The nurse with tears in her eyes answered,
Mr. William Grey... Arm .3’

What? That's a terrible sentiment.

By not speaking the **** up he was (for all he knew) keeping the hospital from finding the real son. Even if we assume he couldn't do it discretely (big stretch), why risk traumatizing a young man to comfort someone delusional and about to die?

Wow, what a touching story! Wouldn't it be weird if it was some sort of made up thing, like the bull people post on Facebook?    
   
Sure glad it's not that.

So, an old man dies happy, and a young man died defending his country. Hate me if you must, but this seems like a good ending to me.

Believe it or not, that is actually part of his job. In the Marine Corps DEP you sign a contract that states that you will do everything in your power to help another Marine.

Reading something like this always reminds of my favorite video game quotes "Spartans never die, they're just missing in action" -Halo Reach.
