R.I.P. I was in A Co, and knew Anderson, but he was in a different platoon, so we didn't hang out much aside from having mutual friends. The other guys involved that were from my platoon all made it. I have mixed feeling about all of it, because I ETS'd before Sep. 11, and was already committed to another unit when they all deployed. Anyone that has missed a chance to be with their guys knows how that feels. Anyway, it's not about me, but the Ranger Buddies, and the brothers that aren't with us. It was an honor to serve with you guys, God Speed!
