SFC Alwyn Cashe
Along with the more familiar definition of the word "amazing" as 'very surprising, wonderful, astonishing, astounding,' my dictionary gives several archaic senses for the word amazement. They are 'overwhelming fear, bewilderment, stupefaction.' Put these all together and such is the feeling when reading the account of SFC Cashe's courage and determination back in 2005 in Iraq. SFC Cashe died of his burn wounds about a month after being injured. R.I.P. What a legacy of bravery to leave behind.
