    My buddy..
    I am white, he was black
    I am black, he was white

    Our souls were bare
    He can't die, I really care
    So, I just held him there
    In the mud...with all the blood.

    *Never forget*

    Sure...I know...Understand the emotion I've tried to put in this thread, is more for people that haven't been there done that, or even served, not you...those without understanding of what it's like to bond, much less serve..Those that see this weekend as just 3 days off work....No gloom and doom for me..Just an attempt to open some eyes. Not that many here need opened, but you never know who will read a post. I hope it didn't hurt you in anyway.:beer:

    Nah....did not hurt my feelings in any shape or form...I know who and what I am....been there and done that...I accept your analogy of what you are trying to get across...maybe it will help...or maybe not...I'm still going to have a fun and great day celebrating memories....by the way you said you were a Warrant Officer...were you a Huey UH1B pilot? Thats what I wanted to be but they sent me to OCS Engineering...not my cup of tea...Warrants rock can relate to NCO's and Commissioned as well...at any rate have a good holiday..no matter how you celebrate..it's a personal thing... :usa:
