This is just creepy

A 48 year 1st sgt (a pretty senior non-com) in Iraq wrote a 200 page letter to his infant son, so that if he was killed in Iraq his son would have some source material to get a chance to know his dad.

I'm sorry, I know that's supposed to be touching, but I just find it creepy. Creepy and irresponsible.

I know if I was a rifleman in Iraq I'd want my first sgt worrying about keeping us all alive, not worrying about leaving a legacy when he dies. I'm sorry about that, but I just don't want somebody fixated about dying in combat to be leading troops in combat.

I'd want him teaching me how to keep my head down, not teaching his son how to live with a dead father.
