doesn’t change history.  Those involve that survived will never forget the heroes that allowed them to live.  Even now the memory is like yesterday:

The sounds, the crack of a bullet whizzing by your head.  The blasts of rockets and machine gun fire all to familiar.  The ambush, sudden and unforgiving.  Yet heroes were born that day, they put their own lives on the line so others may live.  The “Mighty Ten” is how they became known.  (And gettin’ caught by the C.R.I.P.’s meant sure capture or death to the enemy, they had choices.)

…Ambushed and Out Numbered:

Many stories have been told but the survivors all say the same thing.  The heroes were the “Mighty Ten”!   Nothing is as important as remembering what was given.  They have a common cry, “Wolfhounds Forever!”

Once you are a “Wolfhound” you are one “Forever”
