A Fallen Hero

One of the uniformed Barflies took a little road trip last week. Since Shane drives a tank, when I heard him say something about "road trip," naturally (but mistakenly) I assumed it meant the unit was moving locations. It was a different kind of journey entirely. A friend had died. Shane returned to the States for the funeral and traveled back through his memories on a moving journey of a lifetime.

Read the story, posted in two parts on Quilly Mammoth's blog:

Part 1
Part 2

It will be time very, very well spent and do honor to a memory well-worth preserving. Lift a glass and say a word of thanks to men like Chief Petty Officer Paul Darga. He lived and died so we can be free.
