For those that do not yet know, MSG (Ret.) Rodney T Tolentino passed away this past Thursday. As I recall he served in several SF assignments through the years and several of you (QP's) knew him as well, but I knew him for a couple of years as my Team Sergeant in B/2/7 and will never forget him. Not only was he a great Team Sergeant, he was a great friend.

Rest In Peace, T.

Rod was one of the greats.

He and Pete Garner are up there having a tall cold one right now.

RIP, MSG Tolentino. Save us a good seat in the shade.

Gone,but not forgotten.

God Bless,Rest in Peace Warrior.....:(

He was just a simple soldier and his ranks are growing thin
But his presence should remind us; we may need his like again,
For when countries are in conflict, then we find the soldier's part
Is to clean up all the troubles that the politicians start.
If we cannot do him honor while he's here to hear the praise,
Then at least let's give him homage at the ending of his days.......:(

Perhaps just a simple headline in the paper that might say:
OUR COUNTRY IS IN MOURNING, FOR A SOLDIER DIED TODAY. (author unknown)

The passing of our soldiers often go unnoticed and unsung by most of the world, remembered only by family and friends. Wish it were not so. May he RIP, his family will be in my thoughts and prayers.........:(

I realize it's a Canadian song,however I believe most appropriate for this occasion...
