…There will always be an 82d
Airborne Division, because it lives
in the hearts of men. And somewhere
young men will dare the challenge
to “Stand Up and Hook Up” and know
that moment of pride and strength
which is its reward.

Greater love
Hath no man than this,
That a man lay down his
Life for his friends.
John 15:13
