Two of my good buddies will be with the 101st as Officers, one a Infantryman and the other as a Ordnance Officer. Also, to all those Air Assault units, my Dad’s favorite line about y'all is y'all are “to scared to jump and to lazy to walk” but good luck to any of you dopes on a rope.

Interesting to see that one Soldier with a Gopro. 

Since World War II, more than 7,000 Screaming Eagles have given their lives in the name of freedom. As we approach Memorial Day on May 25, we would like to honor all service members who have given their last full measure of devotion in service to our great nation.
