Mistake not grace for mercy.
Dave was part of the QRF that was moving to relieve a Marine convoy that got hit.

Dave was a good man, who was killed while moving forward, toward the enemy.

There are much worse ways to go.

I hate it when I find out about buddies lost on a website. I was in the Q course with this warrior.

RIP brother. We have the watch.
