To my brother in arms,

Your sacrifice for your country and freedom is honored and remembered by the 3rd Squadron, Fifth Armored Cavalry Regiment as well as the American people. The fact that you gave your life for a cause you believed in will serve as a reminder to the world that war is terrible and should always be a last resort to preserve the freedom and right to unrestricted life that exists for every American.

This Wall of names, memorializing our fallen brothers, fathers, sisters and mothers, friends, co-workers, neighbors, acquaintances and others, stands as a monument to your deeds of heroism.

You cannot and will never be forgotten ...

We thank you and love you!

Though you died six days before I was born,
Your name through me still lives on.

My son, like me, carries your name,
And his son, when born, will do the same.

Stories of you a few I have heard,
And not once has there been a negative word.

I too went to war but my body survived,
While part of my soul on the battlefield died.

A little disturbed and emotionally scarred,
I returned, for the most part, unmarred.

With valor and grit you put up a fight,
And to honor your name I�ll give all my might.

I hope in sleep at peace may you rest,
While I�m still awake I�ll fight my best.

From the son of a friend,
Larry Jack Mears
