I was that which others did not want to be.
I went were others feared to go, and did what others failed to do.

I asked nothing from those who gave nothing, and reluctantly accepted the thought of eternal loneliness......should I fail.

I have seen the face of terror; felt the stinging cold of fear; and enjoyed the sweet taste of a momnets love.

I have cried, pained, and hoped....but most of all, I have lived times others would say were best forgtten.

At least someday I will be able to say that I was proud of what I was.....a soldier.

Nice passage Black Sunshine #161. I know that you are a former Army Ranger and Desert
Storm veteran so I can see how this passage means alot to you. It means alot to me since I am a veteran as well.

Thanks for posting this.

Collin

Collin,

Get the book titled "Delta Force: The Army's Elite Counterterrorist Unit" by Col. Charlie A. Beckwith, USA (ret.) and Donald Knox. I read this book back in high school. Col. Beckwith is the man behind Delta Force and this book tells its origins. They are the team that went in to rescue the hostages in Iran. The mission was called a failure after the tragic accident at Desert One between an RH-53D and a C-130. And you recently saw their operations in Somalia in the movie Black Hawk Down.

Quote from the book:
"Wanted: Volunteers for Project Delta. Will guarantee you a medal, a body bag, or both."

Thanks Greg, Delta seems to be a very clandestine group. I had never even heard of them until the movie "Blackhawk Down" and I was active duty Navy from '86 to '92. Thanks for the information.

Collin

Hmm, that's about the time I got the book ... mid 80's. Actually, lemme see... Copyright 1983/First Dell Printing 1985. So 1985 would have been the year. I guess I was just a military nut back then.
