Excerpts from an article by Michelle Tan|Army Times |April 17, 2006
“With the U.S. Capitol as his backdrop, Sgt. 1st Class Darryl Zuchelli re-enlisted in the Army Reserve for the third and final time.”
For Zuchelli, a veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom, the call to serve was so overwhelming that he had to wipe tears from his eyes when he spoke to Army Times.
“Freedom isn’t free,” he said. “These are tears of joy, and tears for our fallen soldiers, the ones that aren’t coming home.”
