Just damn. I missed it by minutes.
My blessings upon the last of the Raiders. We shall not see their like again in our lifetime.
To these last few heroes, I say only: “I’m sorry we let the flag falter these last five years.”

We may never see their like again, anytime, sad to say!
Sarge, the flag has certainly faltered lately, but you are among those who fought for it in youth and fight for it still! It has faltered but will not fall unless we let it fall. I will resist that with my last breath, as I know you will, Brother!
