Who was SSG Lincoln?
He was born a soldier. From a very young age, he knew he wanted to be a defender of mankind. Every year as a child for Halloween he was a soldier or a knight. All he wanted was to protect people. When he learned of the Green Berets and their motto De Oppresso Liber, "to free the oppressed", he knew that was where he belonged."
