thank you very much! If you know men of the Seventh, I would be glad to show them the video. 141 years of service for the flag, from Garry Owen in glory!

I retired 14 years ago and don't know anyone that I can think of who is still in the 7th Cav. I spent my final years in the Sixth Cav. "Fighting Sixth." It was an Attack Helicopter AH-64 unit at that time.

I don't know whether you saw that series, "Out of the West" (I think) but I was so pleased when they didn't engage in a lot of Custer bashing. The part where the cavalry scout's mother and father went to the Little Bighorn after the battle was very touching and, in my humble opinion, was an honorable way to illustrate that what had occurred there.

I don’t know the serie “out of the West”. A serie was made last year, “Into the West”, with noble savages against vile US cavalrymen, I don’t think it’s the same serie !

Custer bashing is a fashion to ignorant morons and anti-US bastards. None of them even opened a book.

THANKS for your service in the military, sir !

Excellent! Thank you for your hard work. I think less than full credit has been given to the 2/7 Cav who spearheaded the assault into Fallujah in November, 2004.

I’ve of course seen the movie We Were soldiers and I’ve been fortunate to read the book in English as well when I was in the USA (I am European)

The LX Ray Battle was nothing less than an heroic stand against all odds. The Sevenths didn’t steal its reputation.
