I wanted to leave you with this poem I received a few months back, I am not sure who the author is, but it really touches home.

Anyone who was in Desert Storm, email me, I have a couple of email 

* addresses from some of the guys !!!!! *

THE FINAL INSPECTION

The soldier stood and faced God, Which must always come to pass

He hoped his shoes were shining, Just as brightly as his brass

"Step forward now, you Soldier, How shall I deal with you?

Have you always turned the other cheek? To my Church have you been true?

The soldier squared his shoulders and said, "No, Lord, I guess I ain't

Because those of us who carry guns,  Can't always be a saint.

I've had to work most Sundays, And at times my talk was tough,

And sometimes I've been violent, Because the world is awfully rough.

But, I never took a penny, That wasn't mine to keep...

Though I worked a lot of overtime, When the bills got just too steep,

And I never passed a cry for help, Though at times I shook with fear,

And sometimes, God forgive me, I've wept unmanly tears.

I know I don't deserve a place, Among the people here,

They never wanted me around, Except to calm their fears.

If you've a place for me here, Lord,  It needn't be so grand,

I never expected or had too much,  But if you don't, I'll understand."

There was silence all around the throne, Where the saints often trod

As the soldier waited quietly, For the judgment of his God,

"Step forward now, you Soldier, You've borne your burdens well,

Walk peacefully on Heaven's streets, You've done your time in Hell."

To all those who have served, God bless everyone of you

ALL FOR ONE

Served with A/1/40 as A62(#2 FO Team) with Hal Warnock as my Recon Sgt. Would like to talk with anyone that remembers me or Hal or was there then. With 1/40 being a bastard unit and being an FO I didn't get to meet many people on the guns. It's been a lonely 32 years, with all my buddies having reunions and stuff and my unit being so small. This web page is great, it's like coming home.

We were an 8" Battalion in Hanau, FRG. I enjoyed your site, and wondered if the 6th has one, or if this might become "regimental" someday.

I was an RTO attached to 3rd battalion 3rd Marine Division (Reinforced)Mike Co. and Kilo Co. Who in turn would attach us to the 5th & 8th Battalion Vietnamese Air Borne Rangers at times. My US Army unit was in Dong HA, I seldom was at my unit; so I remember very little about it. I need help finding my FO-Lt, and Recon Sgt. Their names were Lt. Mentasona? and Sgt.E5 Ely Cooper. I was wounded and my Lt. put me in for the Silver star and Purple Heart. I have no evidence this ever took place, which is why I need to find my Lt. I am not sure of the spelling of his name. I believe he was from some where in pennsylvania. for the same action I was awarded the Vietnamese Cross of Gallantry with Gold Star for valor and received it through the 3rd Marine Division (reinforced) Fleet Marine Force, signed by B. A. HOCHMUTH, Major General, U. S. Marine Corps. This is the only proof I have of the incident which led to our getting the Cross, and my being submitted for the Silver Star And Purple Heart.
