But as the last paragraph of snopes states...
"However, it may not be the literal truth but that doesnt prevent it from being figurative truth. Those who serve overseas do so at the cost of great personal sacrific. A tale such as this - literal truth or not - serves to remind us all of how much they give and how much we owe them."
"All gave some, some gave all." -Howard Osterkamp of Dent, commander of Chapter 3620
