    Just got the news that a fellow trooper I served in Iraq with passed away.

    Really hard to keep the tears away, but sometimes it happens.

    He was a good man, and taken at at early age.

    Rest In Peace JD-Love ya Bro.

    Sorry to hear that.

    One of our guys was a cav scout in the 1st AD.

    Rough times over there. It should be better here.

    I'm not a religious person by any stretch of the word; but I always took a little comfort in the saying "Until we form again."

    Remember the good times and salute the man for the soldier that he was.

    Gone on to Fiddler's Green...


    Halfway down the trail to hell
    In a shady meadow green,
    Are the souls of all dead troopers camped
    Near a good old-time canteen
    And this eternal resting place
    Is known as Fiddler's Green.

    Marching past, straight through to hell,
    The infantry are seen, '
    Accompanied by the Engineers,
    Artillery and Marine,
    For none but the shades of Cavalrymen
    Dismount at Flddlers' Green.

    Though some go curving down the trail
    To seek a warmer scene,
    No trooper ever gets to Hell
    Ere he's emptied his canteen,
    And so rides back to drink agaln
    With friends at Fiddlers' Green.

    And so when man and horse go down
    Beneath a saber keen,
    Or in a roaring charge or fierce melee
    You stop a bullet clean,
    And the hostiles come to get your scalp,
    Just empty your canteen,
    And put your pistol to your head
    And go to Fiddlers' Green.
