Never Forget

And what a wonderful, magnificent way to ensure they’re never forgotten.

Eighteen Air Force air commandos began an 800-mile march last week to honor three comrades killed in Afghanistan.

The airmen departed from Lackland Air Force Base, Texas, on Oct. 16 carrying 50-pound rucksacks and a baton inscribed with the names of three airmen: Tech. Sgt. John Brown, Tech. Sgt. Daniel Zerbe and Staff Sgt. Andy Harvell, who were killed Aug. 6 when their CH-47 Chinook was shot down during a special operations mission in Afghanistan.

The group plans to finish the march Wednesday at Hurlburt Field. They will cover 812 miles, winding through Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida.

When I emailed Ebola the story, he sent back an AirForce video he’d found of some company the SpecOps guys had had along the way.

Don’t you just want to eat them all up?

Honor. Duty. Country.

God bless them, every one.

    Just when I was thinking our country is going to hell in a hand basket, this sweet video gave me hope and put a smile back on my face.
