Osu,

I have been a veteran now 35 years, and yes I remember faces and acts of courage. Heads down, covering each others back, and making sure no one was left behind. Sorta bonds you in a way that only those who have been there would understand.

IMHO, it is the training that bonds many of us whether we will ever actually meet or not. I remember those who taught me and those who shared the training.

Everyone is still with me, every time I train.

Thank you for reading and responding.

Rei, Domo.

We do not rise to the level of our expectations, but fall to the level of our training. Train well. KWATZ!
