Every time I hear of one of our own to have fallen--it chokes me up the same as every time I hear Taps--one in the same. To all that have fallen, we are in your debt.

I lived across from 1CAV DIV HQ at Hood--every night, I listened to it and shed a tear--or many. I still listen to it. Sometimes, Elmendorf AFB up here plays it.
