I think on the eve of this Memorial Day,
we should remember the fallen in wars past
The U.S.Army of the early 80's had alot of
hold-overs from the Viet Nam era ; many of
these men ( and women, but I hadn't met them ) spoke of something called "the price" - that being their life "paid" in the
line of duty.
Their buddies, close friends & family had
paid "the price", and in many of their opinions, it was far too steep. <img src="sad.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>
I'm ashamed I left the Army in 1983 - but
I'm comforted in that many of my graduating
class didn't have to pay "the price".
One thing <i>is </i> un-deniable :
<b>"Because of the fate Our comrades have
met, We the living,<i>must never forget" </i> </b>
