Friend, Of The Cav.
A tribute to Nathaniel, one, of the 234, young Americans who died, in three, days, of fighting in LZ-Xray & Albany, November, 1965, in the valley Of Death, the Ia Drang. Lest we forget our fallen heroes, those who gave the last measure, of devotion. May their souls, be cradled in the Arms, of The Lord, Forever.

The fallen hero
For a fallen hero, may save, the day and unless some, of us do this, there might not, be, a next day. I hope, that you are ok living, in the place, above us. So we thank you, for your sacrifice was not, in vain. For we still have freedom, but it's at a cost, that all of us might, have, to pay. So I thank you, very much, for being my hero, today.
