May We Never Forget

-->http://www.lilesnet.com/patriotic/midi/taps.mid" LOOP



The remains of five valiant U.S. soldiers were laid to rest at Arlington National Cemetery yesterday, August 14, 2007.


They died when their helicopter was shot down.


It was shot down nearly 40 years ago, over Laos, when it was hit by enemy fire as it approached a landing zone to drop U.S. soldiers behind enemy lines, on January 5, 1968.


The Army says it has been trying to recover their remains from the crash site for all these years, but everything from inclement weather to political unrest had prevented that until very recently.


And now, these five soldiers have finally come home.



They are:


Chief Warrant Officer Dennis C. Hamilton, of Barnes City, Iowa


Chief Warrant Officer Sheldon D. Schultz, of Altoona, Pennsylvania


Sgt.1st Class Ernest F. Briggs Jr., of San Antonio, Texas


Sgt.1st Class John T. Gallagher, of Hamden, Connecticut


Sgt. 1st Class James D. Williamson of Olympia, Washington



May We as a Nation, Never Forget Them.

well said, it was a sad day for me when I removed my MIA bracelet, had worn it for years, the officer is no longer MIA, he is KIA and is now a name on the wall.

That bugle is the sadest sound I've ever heard, and well it should be. Thank you for sharing this tribute to the memory of those who have taken their places among other soldiers at Arlington. May their families find solace from their precious loss.

Mr. Ed---thank you Sir for keeping the memories alive. It's been along journey for these soldiers and hopefully our memories do not fade with their passing.

Keep up the good work Brother and thank you for your comments and sentiments. You are a true friend.

Aloha,
Myles

Another good example of uncaring politicians, who talk much, but ACT little!
