Godspeed Specialist Colburn

Mustang 23 of Assumption of Command writes a post about remembering Specialist Galvin J. Colburn:

...After all of the leader and soldier tributes and a wonderful strong version of Amazing Grace, the unit's First Sergeant called the roll.

After hearing all of these people say how wonderful SPC Colburn is, not hearing him answer when he is called really makes your mind put it all together that he is gone...
