  7. War is most often fought by young men. And that statue portrays that youth.

  8. Too often it is the old that send the young to die for their vanity. So many "children" have given all they have, which is their life for a cause not their own...
    How many are enough?

  9. When I look at the photos of myself in Viet Nam I think, Wow! We were just kids.
    Excellent capture indeed.

    So very, very young. So full of life and promise, now frozen in time.

    May we never, never forget.

  11. I agree that he appears to be very young. Sending children to war is a very sad thing to do. They are not old enough to understand what they are doing.

  14. You are right! that face looks all of ten. Back in the day they meant it when they used 12 as the age of an adult!

  15. Usually it is the young men who are sent to fight in wars. I don't support any wars, we need to live in harmony.

  16. We all weep for the ones who fight and die for their country.

  19. Most "men" who fight wars aren't even old enough to drink legally. The statue is true to the soldier. It is nice to see them honored.

  20. I notice that too. Even now, many of the soldiers I see look so young, and it makes me so sad to see them so young and taking on such big responsibilities.

  21. The close-up of his face really shows his youth.
