• Our sincere condolences to the family and friends of Marion Charles Smart. His fellow troopers of the 11th Armored Cavalry’s Veterans of Vietnam and Cambodia, salute our fallen brother. Marion served honorably with HOW Battery of the 1st Squadron in 1968 and 1969, and it was our privilege to have him in the ranks of the Legendary Blackhorse Regiment. Our loss is that of another brother down and we will continue to honor his memory at our gatherings and at our annual reunion. Marion Charles Smart was an exemplary soldier. His name will be listed on the roll of our honored dead and in our newsletter, Thunder Run. But as our Burial Liturgy clearly states: “life has not ended, merely changed” and Marion’s soul continues on an endless path. As we were together then (in Vietnam), we will be together again in the life hereafter, comfortably enfolded in the loving arms of our Merciful Father. • Chaplain Blandin W. Karabinos, 11th ACVVC (Vietnam 71-72)
