This Veteran’s Day everyone will remember their war time experiences and the friends they lost in slightly different ways. The veterans of a past war will no doubt recall the jungles, the crack of AK-47 fire, and the chopping of a Huey’s rotor blades as some gutsy pilot came to pull them out of a killzone.
Our war came with its own sights and sounds. Most of us will remember the heat and the claustrophobic nature of stalking down third world streets filled with garbage, the smell of rot, looking through a narrow green tinted tube that limits your field of vision, all while burdened with body armor, weapons, and other equipment.

Remember remember the 5th of September. RIP VA!
@JackMurphyRGR @DellSpry Apology offered. I missed your e-mail. I am not sure where in the country you are physically located. I am currently in the Quantico area but will be going home shortly for holiday leave. After the holidays, would you like for me to go visit him at Arlington? Dell
That was perfect: sentimental, humorous and very honest. Thanks for sharing that Jack.
@JackMurphyRGR @m3ow He is making a reference to the Old Spice commercials about being the man you want to be. In other words he is complimenting VA and saying thats the man we wish we were.
That was a touching tribute to your friend and mentor Jack.
