May 25, 2013 – Happy Memorial Day: This Memorial Day Holiday let us remember those who gave all they had to preserve our freedom and way of life.
I was privileged to have served as a 1st Lieutenant in the 5th Battalion, 68th Armored Regiment of the 8th Infantry Division; as an Armored platoon Leader.
During my overseas service I was injured in a Jeep rollover accident and subsequently discharged with a service connected disability.
However, as I look back on my military service; I fondly remember those days as some of the happiest of my life. It was a chance to meet people from all walks of life and become close friends during some trying times.
Be safe and have a wonderful 2013 Memorial Day.
W. G. Foster – First Lieutenant – U.S. Army (Retired)
