    As a veteran I could not help my eyes getting moist! May his soul rest in peace and may his dear and near ones have the fortitude to bear the loss with equanimity. I only hope the Nation acknowledges the price they have paid for its security and well being and would rise up to hold the hands of the survivors and would not dump them into destitution.
