Before now poetry has taken notice
Of wars, and what are wars but politics
Transformed from chronic to acute and bloody?
from "Build Soil"

Badger 6: Badgers Down
Badger 6 has written here about the events that cost the lives of three of my friends, three members of my platoon, and three of his soldiers. He has other posts as well, telling about who they were as more than names and faces. Go there if you want to learn. Don't mistake anything you read about them there as hyperbole- the CO is giving you the straight story. He knew these men, too. I doubt I'll write more about them for a while.
