It's sad that it's always Americans who have to die for the cause of freedom. For those about to die we salute you.

Perknose posted Sgt Wilson above me, here is pic of him. He was part of my squad in southern helmand province the first Afghan tour he did. Just a squad of Marines out in the middle of nowhere staying in a tiny PB several clicks away from anyone else. Tons of good memories, been through a lot together.

A saying goes, Hero's aren't born on a football or baseball field, they're born in jungles and deserts of foreign countries.



A true American Hero. Loved American and what it stood for. Tattoo'd it across his chest.
Thanks for putting a face and a story to what was just a name on a very sad list, Ackmed.

Here's to you, Willy. May you never be forgotten. :thumbsup:

Only just found out about him now. He was the step brother to one of my friends, and a great friend to everyone in our class. Given that its been 7 years, I think I should be doing a better job keeping up with friends.
