4: The Washington Ten | The first ever Delta 1/5 Reunion was held at the Vietnam Veteran's Memorial Wall in Washington, D.C., April 11-14, 2011. The ten troopers searched for the names of fallen comrades on the wall, presented the First Cavalry flag to Col. Al Johnson, and huddled in a circle weeping and praying. It was an experience we will never forget. --Lou Perosi Photos courtesy of Leonard Edwards

22: Not Just a Story Not just a story from history's pages-- all around the battle rages. When the choking fire is finally cleared, the ground with blood is fatefully smeared. One soldier lies mournfully still, and another one carries him down the hill. In grief, we weep and beat our chests as our slain soldier is laid to rest. We tell all both far and near about the soldier we revere. While he lies buried 'neath mounded hill, the other stands guard quiet and still. Time passes and memories soften. Fondly, we remember our slain one often. While the soldier who carried him down the hill lives with the memory forged like steel. All around the battle rages-- not just a story from history's pages. --Kathy Parker Woodward | Photo by Leonard Edwards

23: Day is done. Gone the sun, from the hills, from the lake, from the sky. All is well. Safely rest. God is nigh. | Until next year, God bless you and God bless America! | Photo by Jerry Phillipy
