Time oh sweet time, it makes the knees ache and back break.
But, time and the wisdoms gained are the only way that great stories can come to fruition.
This story could not have been properly told 15, 10, or even 5 years ago. Steve Mangold always had a way of starting things, and I believe his death started this story telling process.
A series of reconnecting of old ACo 1st Plt guys after “Mangy’s” death and one guy with bum knees and time on his hands really got things rolling. The collaborative efforts thus far are a raw look into the infantry world.
STAY TUNED IN to the BTG blog and be part of this historical effort.
Sand in the eyes? Lets just say you didn’t want to peek around the corner into my guard position.
