I came across this as i was doing some genealogy reaserch, and I am going to add my words. As a soldier myself, I salute this Officer as a Brother Soldier and the ultimate sacrifice to his country and personal beliefs. All Soldiers have an innate and personal feeling of doing one's duty to God and Country, even if ti the laying down of one's life in defense thereof. Sir, I salute you and as I pipe I will play Amazing grace and Going Home for you.
