Letters To Dougie

Dougie Hardesty's family business was enrolling in the military. His father did it, his father before that did it, and so did his father. So it wasn't a surprise when he did. But what Dougie didn't know, was that his trainer, Kelly Rose, was one of the best. She was one of the only trainers who went one on one with each of her men. She was tougher than half the men that came through the MEU Ground Combat Element. She never let any man phase her. She never let any one man get into her head. Untilthe tragedy..until Dougie..


7. My Bad Decision


It wasn't my fault he made a bad decision. but it was my fault that I made bad decision. If I hadn't sent Dougie into combat  would still be here. He would be able to meet a good girl and start a family. That stupid kid.  He was selfless enough to sacrifice his own life to safe some kid he has never seen before in his life. And how he never will. I wonder how that kid feels. He probably doesn't give a shit that some guy died saving his ass. The one thing I can;t stop thinking about is Dougie's father. I could see the pride in his eyes when I first walked into the room and saw him standing with his son. The only thing I can imagine in his eyes now is the horror and grief he will feel over losing his beloved son. 

So the bottom line is, no matter who's fault I think it may be, I was the one who sent Dougie into combat, and now he is dead.
