Sister, I think the key to understanding your friends ultimate sacrifice may be found here... The Soldiers Creed-

The Soldiers Creed
I am an American soldier.
I am a warrior and a member of a team. I serve the people of the United States and live the Army values.

I will always place the mission first.
I will never accept defeat.
I will never quit.
I will never leave a fallen comrade.

I am disciplined, physically and mentally tough,trained and proficient in my warrior tasks and drills.
I always maintain my arms, my equipment, and myself.
I am an expert and I am a professional.
I stand ready to deploy, engage, and destroy the enemies of the United States of America in close combat.
I am a guardian of freedom and the American way of life.
I am an American soldier.

And those people you see standing near you just before you fall out...Angels.

Nice kitty story. Get well soon.

and now...

Company, FALL IN!
PRESENT ARMS
