From Britain, thru Vietnam, to NYC, RIP

I was making my rounds thru my mostly-daily blog reads, and stumbled across this at the LoneStarTimes. I had seen the cover of "We Were Soldiers Once... And Young" in the bookstore many times, and watched the movie version during the busride down during the deployment last month. Then today I read that one of the gallant heroes from that battle (and the soldier pictured on the book's cover) was still acting bravely inside the WTC six years ago. (Warning: you might cry from reading this. I did. But it was from my joy that a man like him was still acting from the heart, knowing he might die; and from my sorrow that the world is much poorer without him.)
