I remember these men from my youth, growing up in the 70's. They were not heroes. They did not complain. They did not brag. They did their duty. They loved their country. They never asked for special treatment.
They taught me to be a man.
They were both killed as our entire company looked on.
Remembering my Dad who died while serving and protecting our country.
I was four years old,.... my brother three,... my sister seven,... my older brother ten.
We grew up without a Father....
.....A kid will ALWAYS remember ‘the price’ for our freedoms when they loose a parent for their country and its people...Always.....
