Wow - powerfully executed. This piece has me sweating. It also is a grim reminder of what our military men and women go through for our freedom. Thank you for this...It touched my heart.

God Bless~
Good job keeping the reader in suspense. Some compelling thoughts, and an exciting ending. Nicely done.
You did a great job of building the suspense. I think the word count hindered you a bit at the end. This was so good that I'd encourage you to expand it a bit and find the right market. Many people have no idea and you made this so real and you certainly opened my eyes. Outstanding job.
You have a good story here. I read it because I have a brother in law in Afghanistan.

It would help you to join a writing group to review your work. My best friends were my harshest critics. But my writing improved dramatically.

What I liked about this article is you don't insult the reader's intelligence or patronize them with an answer to your question.

Congrats! God Bless~
