Amen. What an excellent eulogy by this SEALs brother. An honorable man leading an honorable life is granted an honorable death. "With it, or on it". He was able to return on his shield. Defending not only the man on his left. But every man woman and child in our great land. Thank you for letting us earn about this man to honor and remember him.
