honoring you....

The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotions and spends himself in a great worthy cause; who at the best, knows in the end triumph of high achievement and, at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while caring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold, timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat. Theodore Roosevelt

Forever Young

Took my Oath with Don and Basic Training at Ft. Lewis (B-4-2). Most of our Basic Platoon were young men from South Dakota and we were very close knit. 50 years later I still visit Don and leave a coin on his headstone. Rest in Peace my Brother.
