Last to Die A Marine Officer sent me this letter. Please read:

Seems very much like John Kerry's "how do you ask a man to be the last man to die in Vietnam? How do you ask a man to be the last man to die for a mistake?" https://facultystaff.richmond.edu/~ebolt/history398/JohnKerryTestimony.html Sir or Ma'am, How does a person ask a service member to be the last person to die for all the right reasons? I can assure you, this would not have been a mistake if our national resolve hadn't withered since 1948. The goal of a war, every war is to make the other side acquiesce. We as a nation have decided that achieving the desired goal by any means isn't fair. We must threaten to win but only so long as it doesn't interfere with Prime Time TV. Under these circumstances, I dont believe we should be asking somebody to be the first or the last to die.
