An old warrior's wish 'When I am dead, cry for me a little. Think of me sometimes, but not too much. It is not good for you to dwell too long. Think of me now and again as I was in life, at some moment which is pleasant to recall, but not for long. Leave me in peace as I shall leave you, too, in peace.'

It's 40, years ago, today, that we, lost you. You, gallantly gave up your life, in the cause, of freedom. You fought, with honor, as a great U.S., Army Sergeant, for our country and our freedom. I will always, remember, your sacrifice and the love, you gave for you country. Now, rest peacefully hero, the journey of love, is long and does not end in death. You're loved and missed, by many.

“You are Remembered”
Peace and condolence, to the family and friends. “He which hath no stomach, to this fight, let him depart. But we in it, shall be remembered. We few, we happy few, we band of brothers!! For he today, that sheds his blood with me, shall always be my brother.” Rest in peace brave soldier, you have not been forgotten. (W.Shakespeare) May God Bless you, for your Sacrifice!!!
