IN MEMORIAM
Battles and wars cannot be fought and won without the loss of lives, and the hard fought battles and resounding victories won by the 5th Rangers were no exeptions. For each heroic assault, -- for each town taken, -- yes, every foot of ground acquired, -- for every defensive line courageously held, the Rangers paid in lives. To the fallen Rangers, the survivors owe their lives, for each died doing his share of the task, -- often more than his share. For these fallen Rangers, the enemy paid dearly, for they fell only after taking a heavy toll of enemy lives, -- fell to enable their fellow Rangers to advance and take their objectives. These Rangers will never be forgotten, for their names and their deeds have become a prized possession of every member of the 5th Ranger Battalion, -- and in the battles that followed their deaths, their much needed presence was irreplaceable.
