    Rest in peace, Brave Warrior.

    Thanks, Kevin.


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    Only just gotten to take a peek at that - quite outstanding and moving. Humbling too - thx Kevin.

    I hope they won't mind me hotlinking a pic but this one was, of many - very poignant.

    I'm not surprised, Native Americans have much more respect for both their Warriors and their dead than most other cultures.

    Very moving.

    Near here on the San Carlos Apache Reservation there is a roadside park (in the middle of nowhere) dedicated to that reservation's fallen, in all branches, in all wars since WWII. When I go through that area, I always stop there for a pit stop and to look at their memorial. Rick is right, they seem to honor their fallen more than we do. I find that sad.....
