So its memorial day and since I enlisted, its become a day of somber remembrance. Most people will walk around, greet veterans and joyously say “Happy Memorial day!”
Meanwhile I sit back and remember the men and women I had the privilege of service with. Not all deaths were a result of combat, but that doesn’t make their deaths any less painful.
PFC Robert Gilman – Vehicle rollover
SSG Samuel T. Castle – I.E.D Al Asad iraq
SGT James Treber – Vehicle Rollover
And this is a very short list. Every year it gets much much longer. So while you guys are out there enjoying your day in of sleep, or bbq’s…pour one out for these guys. I’d appreciate it immensely
