    My sister and brother-in-law were close friends with 1SG Bordelon. They were stationed together in Germany.

    1SG Bordelon's Stryker was attacked by a VBIED on April 23rd, and he died at Brook Medical Center in San Antonio, TX on May 10th. He was a very good guy, and he leaves behind his wife and three very sweet, well mannered, young children.

    Sgt. Bordelon is the 2nd soldier in the picture on the first link below.

    May the road rise up to meet you.
    May the wind be always at your back.
    May the sun shine warm upon your face;
    the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again,
    may God hold you in the palm of His hand.

    "When he reaches the gates of Heaven,
    to Saint Peter he will tell,
    'One more soldier reporting, sir...
    I've served my time in hell"

    :hug: Rest in piece brother...

    What did he die for? :ugh: When does it end with you, Soren? Does your concience ever give you that nagging feeling that you just might be going a little bit over the top - even for you?

    1SG Bordelon quite possibly died for the same thing that Sgt. Wobler died for:

    Selling England by the pound
    You kissed her and walked away into the night
    and she remembers the day when she wore white.
    In a foreign land you fight the enemy
    Yet freedom has a price, it is never free.
    You have fallen and you do not awake
    You give your life for freedoms sake.

    Your mother remembers your first cry.
    Your Father bows his head and says goodbye
    Comfort his widow; give his children shelter and bread
    For daddy won’t be there to tuck them into bed.
    Tell his babies that he truly was a great man.
    Remind them that, he lives in them.

    She holds her children and tries to be bold
    And thinks of him on streets of gold.
    Today you came home to the land in which you grew.
    Covered in Stars and Stripes of red, white and blue.
    You will rest in honor on American soil
    And we will cry because you are no more.

    Fire the guns, call his name, and give him the respect that is due.
    America, today a soldier came home to you

    I lied.

    And I was just making a satirical comment toward Ranger-AO, who had previously stated that (with Iraq having no WMD or Al-Qaeda to back the invasion) the US troops' mission was to soak in fire from terrorists fighting in Iraq, so there won't be any attacks back at home. Sounds pretty offensive, no?

    This thread is the last place you should be making satirical comments.

    Get out of this forum.

    Soren, please refrain from trolling. This thread was intended to be an inclusion of the extended military family in my personal family's grief. You can make your point another time in another thread.
