Remembering Old Friends

Hi Blog-land from Ft. Worth,Texas.
It's Memorial Day weekend and I see that alot of you are driving for the long weekend. I'm with you all out here on the road as my student driver drives. But,I'm sitting quietly in the jump seat..remembering. I'm remembering of Carson,Pendleton,Haney,Bennett and Cruz. We were all together at Ft. Stewart,Georgia when I was serving in the Army (24th military police co.-24th Infantry division mechanized). I think about how hard I fought too stay after my right knee cap decided to face backwards instead of forwards. I lost that battle and was given a choice of an Honorable discharge or a medical. I remember all the training that we went through together. I remember the small,but real battles we went through together in Granada and Panama. I'm remembering going to the strip clubs with all of them in Savannah. Most of all,I remember the phone calls that I recieved from friends and family telling me that they are no longer with us. I'll stop babbling,now. All I ask is that you all say a prayer for them and all the others that gave their lives so that we may live ours in the best country in the world.
