Oh Freddy

When you arrived in my unit, B2/7 1st Air Cavalry I was assigned to be your trainer/instructor on how to be a jungle warrior i found you to be a great guy but trouble followed you around. when you first arrived you did what many FNGs did . you wanted to fit in so you tried to get a sun tanned look you over did it and got so burnt you could not carry a rucksack. you got in a little trouble for destroying government property, yourself. Your next mishap was developing jungle rot. This was common for us on our legs but you got it on your junk. the remedy called for the infected area to be exposed to air. In your case that meant humping through the jungle with your fly open and go commando. You had no luck at all. On the day you died we just returned from a dangerous and bloody mission We were giveh a few days rest in a rear position we were all relaxing, catching up on mail, cleaning our weapons i remember you were laying on an air matress, writing a letter home. well a shot rang out and you were killed instantly by an accidental weapon discharge. i rembered tears flowing down my cheeks. You were my brother and I lost you I think of you often. You will never be forgotten

honoring you...

A butterfly lights beside us like a sunbeam
And for a brief moment its glory
and beauty belong to our world
But then it flies again
And though we wish it could have stayed...
We feel lucky to have seen it.
