In a shady meadow green

Near a good old-time canteen.
And this eternal resting place
Is known as Fiddlers' Green.

Marching past, straight through to Hell
The Infantry are seen.
Accompanied by the Engineers,
Artillery and Marines,
For none but the shades of Cavalrymen
Dismount at Fiddlers' Green.

Though some go curving down the trail
To seek a warmer scene.
No trooper ever gets to Hell
Ere he's emptied his canteen.
And so rides back to drink again
With friends at Fiddlers' Green.

And so when man and horse go down
Beneath a saber keen,
Or in a roaring charge of fierce melee
You stop a bullet clean,
And the hostiles come to get your scalp,
Just empty your canteen,
And put your pistol to your head
And go to Fiddlers' Green.
Gary owen is the name of that poem/song. Bowling green is an older legend said that all warriors cant go to heaven but still have an honorable place to go after death...same as valhalla

God didnt make all men equal colonel Sam Colt did

I am active, they still don't care, well not the brass anyhow. My Sgt takes alright care of me when he can. He has been getting on the company to get my housing memo's so I can get out of these POS barracks here in Korea. The things look like they were built before the Korean war.
Yeah I know what y'all are talking about cuts. I have been seeing a lot of those. It looks like I am going to stuck as a Specialist for a while.
The higher ups wanted to try to med board me because I only have half of my right hip due to a surgery. When They saw me run my 2 mile in 13.20 they left me alone.

Also good to know, wonder if I can find it on i-tunes? Only select few of songs give me chills and just reading that did.
