I can understand the feeling, and you would think I would say she dhouldn't go. But all I can say is age is not a reason to not do something you want to do as long as you can physically do it. If she was 32, would anyone think twice?

She doesn't look 72.

72?! What sick creep deployed her?!

Is it her own free will? She sounds like my grandmother: if she wasn't in a wheelchair, she'd be giving the world a good sound thrashing!

She wants to serve her country, except she hasn't had time until now. I'm glad she has found time for her passion.

I can't imagine my grandma using a sniper rifle... decked in usual military uniform... and a helmet.

If she wants to do it, then go ahead... Good luck to her, and i hope she comes back safe.

If she's vlounteering, wonderful woman. But if not...dear god...72.

What is 72 some magical age that makes someone not able to do the things they want?

I bet she doesn't feel bad about it at all, imagine only after 72 years having your dream come true.

Do you still feel bad for her?
