Default On this Memorial Day...

I ask you to read this tale and to pay respect to someone who was an AMAZING, COUNTRY LOVING, US of A PATRIOT!!

http://www.laruetactical.com/robert_bio.html

I don't know how many times I have opted past his bio, but today for some reason, I was drawn to it.

Please join me in remembering the ultimate soldier, in his 5th tour , who was Robert Horringan.

*mad, MAD RESPECT*

JD

Thanks JD!

We must never forget those who serve in harms way with pride and honor, especially those who make the supreme sacrifice to protect this Nation and our way of life!

Alergies......

He was indeed a fine humane being and selfless brother. Our paths never crossed, but we often traveled the very same ones.

Same SOF group, different Battalions, different teams. Here is more to his bio.

Master Sgt. Robert M. Horrigan

Thanks for recognizing and sharing this JD.

Thanks for the posts fellas. Good stuff. Special thanks to Jack for all he did to keep us all free. Many of us served this great country but people like Jack go above and beyond the call of duty everyday. It would be an honor and a great pleasure to someday shake his hand. Until then Thanks.
