RIP and know that you and your sacrifice will never be forgotten.
The only reason some people get lost in thought is because it's unfamiliar territory.

Damn! My old unit (Company B now 2nd Battalion under this MTOE). Rest in Peace, Hermanos.

No one knows whether you're a genius or an idiot until you open your mouth and remove all doubt.

Don't know where I'm goin', but there's no use in bein' late.
I've never been lost. I've been a mite confused at times, but never lost.
I'm not lost! I know where I am; I just don't know where everybody else is.
