Rest In Peace to American hero, Major Tom Greer. Tom served as a Ranger and Delta Force Commander in the U.S. Army. He wrote a few books including "Kill Bin Laden" where he gives a detailed account of the battle of Tora Bora and the mission to kill Bin Laden. Tom lost his battle to cancer earlier today. Rest In Peace, sir.
This soldier in Iraq asked his wife to send him dirt (U.S. soil), fertilizer, and some grass seed so that he can have the sweet aroma, and feel the grass grow beneath his feet. When the men of the squadron have a mission that they are going on, they take turns walking through the grass and the American soil — to bring them good luck. Of all the things he could have asked his wife to send to him from home…he asked for American soil.
