'Thank A Soldier'
4:44 of an audio-visual tribute to those who do what I can not anymore. Too patriotic for you? Well I cried more than a few tears when I saw the now confident and older face of a (once) 18 y/o young medic I trained at Ft. Carson, CO, in this U-Tube video (below) who looked like he's made some serious rank and is now leading men who look to him for guidance, when once you followed my squad leaders, so ambitious and SO very young. Stay safe SFC Vasquez, my God you have picked-up a chest full of medals and your 'hash-marks' put you as 15-18 years in & heading for retirement soon. GET THERE! The last time I saw you Mano you were just a gal-chasing, super-fit PFC, and a damn good medic I'd just put in for Specialist,:duim: now look howfar you have come? I hope & pray you save lives as well as you did when that 'deuce & 1/2' flipped at Pinion Canyon that horriblygone wrongicywinter night. Please take only those lives you must to protect your casualty collection points. But that's what you are training youryoung-studmedics to do now ain't it? YouTube - Thank A SoldierGood tune, meaningful words, IMHO written by someone who was there. Very spooky when I see one 'my' medicsyears later and they don't even know I'm viewing them from sovery far away.
