We lost 2 guys back in the neighborhood the very same way . It hits the family particularly hard when it happens in training . I would think (I have no firsthand knowledge) that a family can better accept a son that died in a confrontation with the enemy . This conjurs up a special feeling of pride when your offspring had the balls to "get it on" with the bad guys . A death in training seems such a waste to those that are uninitiated . I think (once again , no firsthand knowledge) that I would rather have visions of my son standing on a burning tank outside of Falujah with an M-60 in each hand screaming insults at a horde of tangos while laying down a field of fire that would give Patton a woodie before going down in a blaze of glory . I know these things happen but when it hits close to home the word "accident" adds to the hurt and loss . RIP SEAL .You are at your reward . Now EVERY day is an easy day . You earned it .
