This page is dedicated to those men who believed that freedom was more than just a vague concept. While not directly linked to northern New York, their courage and dedication impacts all of us. I am proud and honored to have had the pleasure of knowing them. Hopefully this section of our web site will help preserve a portion of our history and provide a link to those who gave so much that we may enjoy the way of life we cherish today.

The photographs below cover the period 1967 - 1973 during which I served with the US Army Special Forces.
