D.E. Sanders - Army

No "hero" here. REMF (derogatory profanity for someone in the rear echelon) most of both tours, three TDYs. Quarry and construction work. A couple of mortar/rocket incomings.

Strongest memories? My brothers, and the fact that I came back literally unscathed and so many far better than I did not! Peace and God bless you all.
