God, Family, Duty, Honor

Mike Stokely didn't die for a just cause, he died for a lot of just causes, including the ones I set out above. I wish I were fit to tie his shoe laces but I am fortunate enough to have a son who believed in God, family, duty, honor and country and who certainly turned out to be the better of the two of us.

Rest in Peace, Mike. HOOOOOOOOAAAH!

    Read through the comments on Sgt. Hook and caught your reply to mine, so I thought I would stop by here and say "HI".

    Reading the comments on the Stokely post was actually quite inspirational.
