The US armed forces, are nothing to mess around with. These men make me proud to be an American. Say what criticism you will, but it will all come
from lesser men that have not risked a thing in this life for anyone else beyond what was comfortable to risk and did not require death as a possible
They volunteered for their final mission, no one asked them there. They chose their death and faced it with honor. They did not run, they did not let
die. Take this as an example of what a real human being who has harnessed his emotions can do when he is motivated by his true self and his true
ethos. May they inspire us all to live better more appreciative lives of sacrifice for our fellow man.
You two men, you honor us.
Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods. Your names will be remembered as being of the best sons our nation has brought to the world.
While others ran from the danger, you ran into it. You did so to save the lives of others who could not defend themselves, and saved many of them,
though you could not save yourselves.
May your warrior spirits rest in peace, having chosen your time to die, unlike many that live uncertain of when that may be and live in fear of that
moment, their entire lives.
You were our shield and our sword, and you did not break and shatter. You held true and made our people stronger for it.
Though I am sure your brothers will miss you, know that we thank you for being able to be an apreciative nation this once in all their honor through
you. You are the faceless warriors that keep our fire burning in the dark and our banner held high in the blight of life.
Thank you all. You are our finest, and we your grateful people. May your blade be as true as your soul .
We are with you,
rest in peace knowing you have honored your people and inspired them to take your sword in your absence.
