COT: 18 reps for the 18 Soldiers who died between 3-4 October during the Battle of Mogadishu. 1 Rep for SGM Bob Gallagher (then SGT). SGM Gallagher was my SGM in Iraq and was awesome. But the scars and wounds (mental and physical) that he carried with him over the years with the Rangers left a mark we couldn’t necessarily see.
(1) a group of men found by a common purpose can achieve anything… just as those Rangers and Delta soldiers did back in 1993 in Mogadishu
(2) everyone is fighting a battle. sometimes we can see it, and sometimes we can’t. a smile a wave a nod can make all the difference to somebody. check in on somebody today.
