Friend Of The Cav

A tribute to George, one of the 234 young Americans who died in three days of fighting in LZ-Xray & Albany, November 1965, in The Valley Of Death, the Ia Drang. Lest we forget our fallen heroes, those who gave the last measure of devotion. May their souls' be cradled in The Arms Of The Lord Forever.
