The Global War On You Know Who

"The West is facing a concerted effort by Islamic jihadists, the motives and goals of whom are largely ignored by the Western media, to destroy the West and bring it forcibly into the Islamic world -- and to commit violence to that end even while their overall goal remains out of reach. That effort goes under the general rubric of jihad."

Never Forget Lt. Michael Scott Lamana

I am participant #711 in the 2,996 project.

Michael Scott Lamana, of Baton Rouge, LA, was 31 years old and a Navy lieutenant, formerly enlisted, when he was killed in the attack on the Pentagon on September 11, 2001. A graduate of LSU and Navy ROTC, "Scotty" served as a briefer for the Chief of Naval Operations of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and was working on an MBA at the University of Maryland. His family's Navy tradition includes a World War II veteran and a Navy SEAL.

He was buried October 9, 2001, at Arlington National Cemetery, in the shadows of the Penatgon, with full military honors. Lt. Lamana left behind his parents, two sisters, his wife Lorna, and their dog, Nieko.

Friend Ryki Carlson wrote: "I salute you Michael Scott and all that you stood for!" I salute with you, Ryki.

Remembered by family and friends.
Remembered by friends and total strangers.
Remembered by still more friends.

Never forget Lt. Lamana, his widow, or his parents.

Day is done, gone the sun,
From the lake, from the hills, from the sky;
All is well, safely rest, God is nigh.

Fading light, dims the sight,
And a star gems the sky, gleaming bright.
From afar, drawing nigh, falls the night.

Thanks and praise, for our days,
'Neath the sun, 'neath the stars, neath the sky;
As we go, this we know, God is nigh.

Sun has set, shadows come,
Time has fled, Scouts must go to their beds
Always true to the promise that they made.

While the light fades from sight,
And the stars gleaming rays softly send,
To thy hands we our souls, Lord, commend.
