Tears filled my eyes as I stared at a little white stick in my hands.  There, in the dimly lit bathroom of Gannet's Pharmacy, I would discover my fate, and he wouldn't be there to see it.  I stared at the white and yellow tiles covering the walls, counting them as the timer ticked down.  The rest of my life depended on what I would learn in fifty three, fifty two, fifty one seconds.  I felt cold, numb as if I were missing something and I knew what it was, Danny.  He should be here, rubbing my arm as we wait.  He always wanted a kid, and now that I may finally be able to give him one, he wasn't here.  

Captain Daniel Joseph Kohl was in the middle of God-knows-where-Afghanistan fighting for the red, white and blue.

Your picture is of a Marine, not a soldier. Army-soldier, Marine-Marine... That being said, well written. I like it!
