CACTI FOREVER

E Company, 1/35th Infantry, 3rd Brigade, 4th Inf Division.
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition;
And gentlemen in England now-a-bed
Shall think themselves accurs'd they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon Saint Crispin's day.

ALL FOR NOTHING

he was with our recon platoon in central highlands.. we were crossing a river via ropes. he slipped from the rope and fell to the water.Two guys went in to help him, but he went about 25 feet and went under. He never surfaced again... another unit stayed in that area for a couple of weeks, never to recover his body...we were trying to cross the seesan river next to Cambodia, a free fire zone.. He was one of the nice guys... we all felt bad about it. Never did get across the river... All for nothing.....
