    Arm them, they shoot at us anyway. The Red Cross doesnt protect you. Retired Dust Off pilot.

    Let the military make the decision... granted, this young man's mother is devestated and heartbroken - but this decision is not the call of someone in her shoes and there will be more parents who, upon losing a loved one, will try to rally changes in the "memory" of the lost hero. Absolute mistake... stay out of the business of war and saving lives in combat and let the professionals handle it. I was an avaition med tech and served my share of air-evacs.
