    The article linked above:

    He did, indeed, and he didn't need the comparison to make the point evident.

    So damned young. :frown:

    At least he took a few of those bastards with him. :mad:

    Semper Fi, brother.

    :usa:

    I wish the article didn't include the names of those two clowns at the end...Semper Fi.

    Wow, quite the article. If you are gonna go, that is the way to do it. I can't think of a better way to be remembered than to be fighting courageously for his men and his country. Reminds me of the story of Marcus Luttrell (Navy SEAL). That is the way that I want to go, a way that no one can be ashamed of.

    Later,

    Sad story. God Bless him and his young Bride. There are thousands of other similar stories, many Academy grads and some who were not.
    Most of them were Heroic deaths without Headlines.

    bsaeagle07 - no disrespect intended but I hope you don't want to go this way and I hope you don't go this way. Strive to live to old age, that is nothing to be ashamed of.

    lol,

    I don't WANT to go that way, but if that is how it is going to be, than I want to burn out bright.

    Later,

    I agree completely. If you're gonna go, go down swinging.
