This is not at all what I had in mind originally but it hit me and I decided to run with it.
100 words per wordcounter.net
In honor of Sgt. Manuel Rodriguez
*     *     *     *     *

"Our theater of war will be the Pacific."
 
He remembered the feeling that ran through him as he heard those words. Pride. Determination. A tiny tingle of fear. He was going to do his part, to join his brothers fighting overseas; fighting for a way of life, for freedom, for God and Country. He never thought about the pain, the frailty of life. One quick second, a flash of gunfire, and everything changed.
 
Alone, he lay dying in the jungle; his only company the sounds of bullets, of grenades. He had saved a life, but lost his own in return.

Thank you sweetheart! *hugs* It wasn't what I planned but I figured that since it smacked me upside the head, I'd better write it :D

A good smack up side the head is a great motivator sometimes... well, in the writing sense, anyway. ;)

It's a pretty good motivator other ways too *g*

What a terrible tragedy! I loved this line the best: Alone, he lay dying in the jungle; his only company the sounds of bullets, of grenades.

Thank you for reading! This isn't what I'd intended to write at all but that first line hit me and I had to do it.
