Finding Samantha

At first I thought this was going to be a dry, silly little story about a mis-dialed call but then I listened to it and thought about what this young man was about to go into and the fact that a soldier, just like him, had been killed a few days ago in Helmand, leaving behind a wife and a new baby that he'd never seen.

I don't care about the politics here - these men and women are doing their duty, whether you think it's right or wrong and this voicemail reminds us of their youth and fragility in the face of what they are experiencing out there in the dust.|uk|dl5|link4|

It's a bit of a tear-jerker really.

As this didn't make it into the news in NZ at all - has there been any follow up on this? I've not been able to find anything online...
