This is a most appropriate Hall of Heroes thread, in my opinion. I am sometimes amazed that in this crazy, depraved and God-forsaken age that this Nation still produces brave men and women willing to put themselves in hazard's way for the USA and for the Freedoms we continue to enjoy.
I served and did my job. I'm not a hero, but I take pride that I can walk among those who are heroes and feel no shame. We are Brothers and their heroic deeds ratify the soldierly virtues we all have within us and the Code we are sworn to follow. They are our champions, and we, at least I, am happy to have met some of them and seen those of them in my own outfit in action.
There are few things in life more impressive than seeing one of our highly trained, professional and courageous boys or girls do their stuff.
God Bless them all - God keep them under his healing wings - God save the United States of America!
Genuflectimus non ad principem sed ad Principem Pacis!
Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. (Isaiah 49:1 KJV)
