God Bless Joe

I grew up in College Park with Joe. I played Little League with him...I remember him as a good player and a very nice kid.



Only today, 1252012 did I learn Joe sacrificed his life for us to be a strong and free country. God Bless you, Joe. You will be in my prayers this evening.

I wished I had a memory of you. We may have passes bye though. I use to deliver the Washington Star to your Mom. Your Mom gave me your fatigues. I was proud to wear them. Thank you for your sacrifice. RIP. Steve Ruback 49th Ave.

Departed Trooper Remembered

From your Brothers of Delta Troop 2/17th Cavalry.
We will, "Never Forget".
We Honor your Memory at each Reunion by lighting a candle and speaking your name.
So little, for what you have done for your country.
So little, for the time we shared.
So little, for the life you lost.

A poem for you my brother. Until we all meet again.


FIDDLERS GREEN

Halfway down the trail to Hell,
In a shady meadow green
Are the Souls of all dead troopers camped,
Near a good old-time canteen.
And this eternal resting place
Is known as Fiddlers' Green.

Marching past, straight through to Hell
The Infantry are seen.
Accompanied by the Engineers,
Artillery and Marines,
For none but the shades of Cavalrymen
May dismount at Fiddlers' Green.

Though some go curving down the trail
To seek a warmer scene.
No trooper ever gets to Hell
Ere he's emptied his canteen.
And so rides back to drink again
With friends at Fiddlers' Green.
