Remembrance of the night before

I remember that we spent the night talking and about him getting married when he returned and inviting me to his wedding . Just having great conversations. He felt sleep on my cot and I felt asleep in his. I remember the Sergeant coming to wake him up because he had to go on a mission replacing somebody else that was sick. I watch all 4 getting their packs ready to go.
I remember getting the news from one of the men that the Helicopter was hit and everyone died. It was the most heartbreaking news. Gerald Hancock, one of the men just returned from R&R in Hawaii where he spent time with his wife.
Hugh R McKinney love you brother.

honoring you.....

War drew us from our homeland
In the sunlit springtime of our youth.
Those who did not come back alive remain
in perpetual springtime -- forever young --
And a part of them is with us always.
