Young Patriots

You forget–I forget–how young so many of our guys on the frontlines of the war on militant Islam (see Andy McCarthy) are. Here’s part of an e-mail from one of my regular correspondents from Baghdad: “Feeling old today. A new guy reported in last night and when I was looking at his record he was born in 1984 – I graduated high school in 1983. He also went on about the last meal he had in the States, when his parents took him to Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse…. At the end of the inbrief I felt old and hungry and went to bed.”
