"Northern Ireland widow of a soldier shot dead in southern Afghanistan has said she has lost the love of her life"

It is very sad.

It is very easy to think of these unfortunate people who are injured or killed as just another soldier.However, they are someone's son, father, boyfriend, husband or friend and each one will be sadly missed by their respective families.

It is really sad that we as a nation do not honour and respect them for carrying out their duties. Even if you do not agree that they should be there they are still only carrying out their duties as they have been ordered to do and they deserve our respect for doing so.

It's a sad these days that those who serve Queen & Country and on the orders of the government are not able to wear proudly their uniforms in case they are attacked.

Just shows this country is going down the river!

12 Afghans, who also had families, died as well.
