    They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
    Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
    At the going down of the sun and in the morning
    We will remember them.

    -- Lawrence Binyon

    my cousin Brian gave his life while serving as a helicopter gunner in the Marine Corps during Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2003. He was a great American, an honorable Marine, and a loving husband.


    RIP Brian. You will never be forgotten. Semper Fi.

    One of my great friends - "Uncle" Larry Kuhns- one of the greatest guys I have ever met in the service, so honest, so wonderful. He will be missed.

    Mickey was the jumpmaster on my final airborne jump before I left active duty. Mickey, I will always remember the things you taught me about being a soldier and hope I can come close to being as great an NCO as you were. You are sadly missed... :sadwavey:

    Eh?
    I'm thankful for the men and women who gave their lives before so that we could grow up in peace. I wear my poppy with pride for their bravery and with sorrow that they paid the ultimate price.
