They're still dying on some forbidden desert, saving people from politics they don't want to be saved from, for a cause they lost faith in a long time ago. They're still our 18 year old kids, getting murdered away from their family. They're still firing uranium-tipped bullets at evil 18 year old Iraqi conscripts.
