He was nineteen. That's the part that sticks in my head over and over again: he was nineteen years old. That's the part that sticks with us a half day after Navy announced his death: he wasn't even old enough to drink or rent a car, and he's dead, and a family doesn't have a son this morning.
That's all. It's awful, and the worst thing in the world, and that's all. Good morning.
