I remember being 10 years old and watching it on T.V. and thinking that was what I wanted to do when I got big.

That is me on the far right with just the 203 showing, Farber is on the far left and that's Eubanks in the middle. They were in the latrine incident with me when we got Reeves out. That is across the street from La Commendencia where we blew a hole in the wall of the gym across the street to gain better access. I'll never forget the building rattling while the birds prepped the objective by taking out the nests at each end. Yeah, the ripped up BDU's were fucked especially when they kept covering the glint tape at the airfield while Specter was belching death.

A special thank you goes out to the 82nd Abn for showing up late and making us do ops in broad daylight.:doh:

Thanks EatIII, my Squad leader left SOFT and drove to the airfield to catch a bird. He didn't get to jump with us, but he linked up with us. He taught me the true meaning of being a Warrior.

A Salute to Larry Barnard and Roy Brown... Two superb Americans who paid the ultimate sacrifice 20 years ago... We were all standing by waiting to exit over Rio Hato, and about right now the F 117s were dropping (and missing targets) bombs...

Cheers to all of us who are still around and I raise a glass to those who are no longer with us...

At least we made it. We couldn't help it if the damn birds at Green Ramp let us sit there for hours on end.

Salute to all that made that trip.

I remember being 37 and watching it on TV and thinking that I wished I could be there to help kick Noriega ass! God Bless you and keep you, Rangers, and all who took part in Just Cause...because it was.

For those of you who have access to my pics, the one of my platoon in front of the flag is the same flag we took down from that building. I always like clearing buildings while they are on fire.

Saludos to all who went, and expecially to those who didn't come back. I was busy elsewhere in the region at the time, but we wanted to be with you guys....although you didn't really need us.

Headshot and the others that fought and died there.
GREAT job guys, you will be remembered for all time.
You have my respect.



(Headshot, you're still a wanker ;) )

Funny, you were 10 when I was going through Basic training and I still have more hair than you. :D

The day has come and gone quite uneventful compared to 20 yrs ago. Nobody here remembered or said a word, including my parents, and I haven't reminded anyone as I like it better that way. Thanks to all of you for your remembrance. I lit a candle today in honor of PFC Roy D. Brown, A Co, 3/75. Roy and I went through BAC and RIP together, and being a Ranger was all he ever talked about. He was a quiet kid who stuck to the task and always had a smile, he has been missed.

Here's a better shot of the above photo.

View attachment 11256

You can't see it in this photo, but 2nd Sqd is moving along the edge of the building inside the fence. Most of them were taken out of action with a grenade that came out the 2nd story window. It's not a good feeling to be stepping over your wounded buddies to drive on to the Ranger objective while they are calling out for medics.
