Very sad and tragic news. Our thoughts with all concerned.
If you can keep your head whilst all around are losing theirs, you have probably completely misread the situation!!

tragic
thoughts with the family and team
When the smoke has cleared and the bullets cease, another soldier rests in peace. The politicians who caused the fight, rest at home no danger in sight.
