    Gentlemen of Cougar Company, 2-237 INF REGT, you have my utmost respect, my utmost admiration and my utmost empathy for your losses. Remember men, there are SO few Americans who will ever hear a shot fired in anger while deployed to some God forsaken shit hole like this. This makes you one of the few, brave individuals who will know what the ultimate meaning of camaraderie truly is. Thank you SO very much for your sacrifices and your dedication. Given the weather, the terrain, physiological (exhaustion, hunger) and psychological (the loss of your fellow Soldiers, dangerous combat conditions) factors, and those are just a few of the difficult aspects, and in the face of the enemy, you performed your mission with honor and commitment to your fellow Soldiers. NO ONE could ask any more of you than to do your best in service of our brothers. SFC(R) Black. Out.
