SSG Green was my replacement December 29th, these four men were killed just a few days later walking into what was thought to be a deserted base camp, it has often been a thought that if I had but stayed just a few days longer these four names would not be on this page
The soldier is not a man of violance, he carries arms and risks his life for mistakes not of his making.

He has the merit of being unflinchingly true to his word to the end, while knowing he will be forgotten
