I served with him, in the field
1645, crossen way, lexington, ky., 40515, USA
We called him, Joe. He was, a simple good man. A kind man. A quiet gentle, large man. Joe, took a bullet, to the head, during a 3, day battle, during operation Thor. Four, of us were crouched down, in a small trench, as we began our attack, on the enemy. Just, as the fight started, the most strangest, thing happened, I have ever witnessed. Right, at our feet, a gun barrel, from an AK47, just poped up, through the dirt and fired off one, round, hitting joe, in the forehead and then disappeared, back down in the ground, again. There was no opening, in the ground, from where it came. There was nothing, to shoot at. I couldn't, believe my eyes. Two, of the men, there, ran, for another place, to fight from. I stayed, with Joe. I picked him, up and carried him over, to a tank and put his body on top. I rode with him, on top, to a more, secure area back, about 50 yards. There, I carried him, to another vehichle, that could get him out, of harms way. A corpman and I worked, to save his life. He died in my arms, as I blew his last breath, into him. I became very angry and went right back, into battle. I went back, to the place, where the gun barrel, came out, of the ground. I summoned a tank, to the area and the tank spun, it's tracks and killed the SOB., that killed Joe. With the help, from the tank, I took out, 2, more snipers and 2, machine gun positions. Joe, had his revenge, that day. It was just so wierd, how it happened. I saw, a lot of death, in Vietnam, but that was, the most strangest, thing, I had ever seen. I think of Joe, often. Love you, brother. Animal

DESCANSA EN PAZ
DESCANSA EN PAZ, ESE. Rest In Peace, Cpl., Garcia. Jose, no nos hemos olvidado, carnal. You, are not forgotten, ese. Even as years pass, NAM, keeps coming back to us. It's been, a long time, but to many of us, it seems, like last night. 37, years ago, TODAY, you gave, the supreme and ultimate sacrifice, for Our Country. You served honorably and died gallantly, in the field, of battle. 1968, was a very bad year, for US. I wish, I could, have you, In Country, in 1968. We of La Raza were few, but we were everywhere. We gave, our all, to LA CROTCHA. (THE CORPS) WE WON'T FORGET. SEMPER FI, BRO.
