On the news tonight a US soldier in Afganistan got into a firefight and leaned against the cell phone he had with him and accidentally hit the redial. It went to his parents answering machine and lasted 5 minutes. During the recording there was constant fire, their son called for a new barrel for I presume his machine gun and then you could hear hollering "RPG Incoming" and the phone went dead.

As it turned out it was just another day in paradise and the mother was able to get thru to him a couple hours after they got home and he was fine. I would imagine that was the worst two hours of their lives until they got to talk to him.

I can't even fathom that. Pure hell comes to mind. Thank God they were able to talk to him and he's okay.
