You answered a call and became a soldier. You answered a call and became a paratrooper. You answered a call and joined others to lead the way. You answered a call and in so doing gave the supreme sacrifice. Rest in peace fellow trooper. Mike Masters.

We were in High School together for a short time. Short but unforgettable time. You, my brother Danny and I hung out together at school. We were not part of the "in crowd" but we had our fun anyway - playing paper football on the desk tables, talking, telling jokes--Just being good friends. I think about you a lot and always wanted to say thanks for being there for us. I miss you Wayne. Joe Hales.
