Five years ago Tonight

Were any of you lot knocking about the Kuwait/Iraq border or afloat on a yank land ship 5 years ago tonight? I was with 3 CDO on the USS Rushmoor waiting to land on ''red beach'' on the Al Faw.We were the kucky half of the SQN as we were drinking Yank navy posh coffee while our muckers were ashore getting Scud alarms all night. Anyway 8 guys from 3 CDO didnt make back due to the helicopter crash ,RIP guys. 5 years eh , seems only recent.
Stand Easy and RIP.

I've always done my duty, No matter where it may be, Ashore with the Gallant Commando's, Or out with the Fleet at Sea.

So when Gabriel blows his last trumpet, And the reaper, his harvest doth glean, Remember, if I've been a sinner. At least God I've been a Marine.
