Many of you might know him. He is a former student of Visa Oshwal primary and Tala boys. He was a talented soccer player, later joined Tusker FC. The last time I heard about him is when he had joined the British Army.

Was later posted in Afghanistan and lost his leg after the enemy bombarded his unit. Why does the American and British armies like recruiting Africans and then put them in the front line wakati wa vita?I personally knew Opati. He was like a hero to many of us at Tala boys cause of his footballing talent.
I have like 3more friends serving in the US army. Two have already being to Afghanistan but waliponea. They are now swimming in richness.

I think you enlist in the US military by choice. And you have to understand you didnt get recruited to go train to be a school teacher.

That will help. But if you have any experience with someone who fought in those wars, money is the last thing on their mind. The wars screwed up their mental states. I picked up my childhood friend returning from Iraq and his mental was not right. He had to be rehabbed in Florida to function in society.
Very true about mental state. In the video, Opati admits he once contemplated suicide.

Hehehe....If it was the other way round, I am sure we would also recruit Americans and put them in the front line.

Hio ni occupational hazard. Atleast I know they dont abandon you. Americans whine about veterans yet they have very good packages: free healthcare, education for those who choose to pursue. The word veteran guarantees you countless scholarships
