In memory of -

Sergeant J Burger

"As you grieve know that we are remembering you,
and honoring the memory of J ."

"Fire in my lungs, and my camoe clinging to my body, you would have to use a metal scraper to remove it from my skin.
My cover, was no guarantee against death, but for now as I grasped for air, it was my only short comfort.

... the shots, and the Sergeant shouting - Kry die (censored)! - (Get the SOB)
Many years after that I was asked why?
My answer remains constant - He is my brother, we move as one against the tyrant called the Death Angel. A Tyrant unmoved by politics, hate, or any personal believes, but a Tyrant going for a world where men hate each other.

In all of that chaos, I felt the presence... I felt the presence of a Higher Being - and although through all of this I was questioning life on earth... the only constant Northern Star was that of my Brother leading the way My Brother - J

w I was on the vehicle when he died and I lost a good friend and buddy. I will never forget that day. To his family who supported me and all the guys on the base, I never said these word: THANK YOU. WITHOUT YOU I WOULD NEVER HAVE BEEN WHERE I AM NOW.

w Vandag 20 jaar terug, is nog vriende van ons af weggeneem. Vandag dink ek terug aan daardie dag en sien net weer hoe groot is God en hoe klein is ons in die wereld. Mag God elkeen van julle beskerm en vrede gee aan die wat iemand verloor het. Vind rus in Hom. Groete.
