Valhala bound for sure. Rest in Peace, Warrior.

RIP Tripwire.
You'll ride a black tornado across the western sky.

Hope is not a plan.

Always keep your mouth shut and never rat on your friends.

Rest in peace Sir

Certainly there is no hunting like the hunting of man, and those that have hunted armed men long enough, and liked it, care for nothing else thereafter.

R.I.P., Soldier.

Thank you for the insight and the laughter.

Though here at journey's end I lie
in darkness buried deep,
beyond all towers strong and high,
beyond all mountains steep,
above all shadows rides the Sun
and Stars for ever dwell:
I will not say the Day is done,
nor bid the Stars farewell.

Rest in Peace Trip Wire, you will be missed. I always enjoyed your AAR's after one of your cruises or gatherings. Condolences to your family.

I thought he just turned 81 a few months ago...?

Same here, but my dad was with a different division in the 25th. I always appreciated his sharing and his condolences when my dad passed.
