You are not forgotten

To those that have given their lives so that others may live:
SSG Leslie "Wade" Martin  
You knew I wanted your job when you PCS'd, getting it early wasn't part of the deal.
SPC Angela "Angie" Niedermayer
An airborne "sister" like no other, you always found a way to brighten the day.
SSG Logen "Woody" Woodrow
We didn't know each other well, but you will always be remembered.
SPC Lunsford B. Brown
You never got the chance to meet your daughter, but I know your watching over her every day.

The muffled drum's sad roll has beat
The soldier's last tattoo'
No more on life's parade shall meet
That brave and fallen few;
On Fame's eternal camping ground
Their silent tents are spread;
But Glory guards with solemn round
The bivouac of the dead.
