What can YOU say in six sentences?
A tribe of old fellows gathered around a simple framed, yet hazed and time-worn photo at the Eagles Roost Community Center in Fort Campbell, Kentucky. They had a ceremony of sorts, yet secretive… whispers, small talk, handshakes, and then, goodbyes.
Observing the ritual, the new commanding officer shuffled toward the photo as the old fellows dispersed. Taking a look, he attempted to read the engraving below a young purple hazed soldier, although the inscription was also clouded.
So he moved a bit closer. And as he decoded, he imagined those old fellows in their day, tripping from C-141 jets with Jimi Hendrix, Paratrooper, 101st Airborne Division.
