“Russian soldiers are in our hospital. Not to fight but hurt ones. I am a low level nurse so my duties are not very important. I clean wounds and change bandages. These are boys. Young boys 18 or 19.

They cry for mama like ours do. I do not have soft feelings for our enemies but I do for poor boys in pain. They are brought here and their friends are concerned for them. This is such a waste. Why must this happen? Such waste of young lives.”

Every soldier has a story, and every story deserves to be told.
