"Dennis: it's been 10 years now since I was on that mission with you and others outside Al-Haswah. The grey Marine Medic chopper took you away after the tragedy. The rest of us in solace headed back to base on Route Christie, Route Christie never had any explosive surprises, so it was a peaceful route to go back on while thinking of your passing. Always remembering you Dennis."
