That's our soldier

on the front page of the Gazette!

“Did any of your friends get hurt?”

The little girl’s question might have dredged up difficult memories for Sgt. Reuben Kraayveld.

But he handled it gently.

“Some people do get injured sometimes. That’s part of what happens.”

I know he's chafing at the exposure, but it's important for those of us back home to have a true picture of what's happening in Afghanistan.

Rtwt: "Soldier talks of mountains, war and faith."
