he was killed in Iraq by a road side bomb. he was one hell of a guy. he would go whay out of his way to help out anyone he could. one of his hobbys was beer brewing and any time we had a platoon get together we never had to buy beer.
Now theres a way to make friends quick! One of my SL's told me there isnt a debt in the Army that cant be paid back with beer. It just varies in how much of it. Lol.
BTW Welcome from Texas and Thank You for your service, much appreciated. Hope you enjoy the site.
"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself."
