I can be sure that he knew in his heart how all those around him in body, spirit and mind felt about him. I am thankful for the time I was able to get to know him. God bless his family and friends.

But O heart! heart! heart!O the bleeding drops of red,Where on the deck my Captain lies,Fallen cold and dead.

O Captain! my Captain! rise up and hear the bells;
Rise up—for you the flag is flung—for you the bugle trills;
For you bouquets and ribboned wreaths—for you the shores a-crowding;
For you they call, the swaying mass, their eager faces turning;
Here Captain! dear father!This arm beneath your head;It is some dream that on the deck,You've fallen cold and dead.

My Captain does not answer, his lips are pale and still;
My father does not feel my arm, he has no pulse nor will;
The ship is anchored safe and sound, its voyage closed and done;
From fearful trip, the victor ship, comes in with object won;
Exult, O shores, and ring, O bells!
But I, with mournful tread,
Walk the deck my Captain lies, Fallen cold and dead.




He has gone to join his men on the wall
I can't think of anything better to post. A great poem when Walt Whitman wrote it after Lincoln's assassination, it is a most fitting thing to read at the death of a veteran.

I called the funeral home this morning and they said the Jensen family would be in at 1:00 to make arrangements. I will try to call back Monday morning to see what time the services will be.

To Angie and the family: my heartfelt condolences in the passing of a great man. I am glad that I was able to meet Angie and see Ken at our 2008 DELTA Company reunion and to recall the good and bad times we were together. As most of you know from all of Ken's postings, he was Delta/Lima platoon leader several different times from July 1967 to February 1968 (he was wounded so severely he did not return to DELTA. He just kept coming back to us. That is true devotion to his men.

I salute you Ken and wish you Godspeed to meet up with our lost troops from Lima.

Words cannot express the grief and sadness on the loss of the best of the best..RIP and Godspeed my friend

"In every life,
there comes a time,
to walk in shadows and to walk in sunlight,
to hear silence and a song to shed tears of sadness and of joy,
to forget what was taken,
and remember what has been given."
