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.

Division operations ranged from the South China Sea in the east to the Cambodian border in the west with the Division base at Camp Radcliff near An Khe.
