I don't want to misrepresent myself, so a little clarity is in order. My avatar, the 1st Battalion Ranger Flash is in memory to my youngest son. He was a Special Operator killed in Afghanistan in 2002 during the Battle of Takur Ghar which was a part of Operation Anaconda. Many young men have made the ultimate sacrifice in the defense of their country. We will always remember.

Welcome to BoB, Rick.  There is no greater loss than to lose one of your children.  We are all grateful for your son's service and sacrifice.

I salute your Son and you and your family for your sacrifice.  I too have lost a loved one.  My son-in-law was a U.S.Army Kiowa Warrior helo pilot who lost his life in Iraq when his helo went down.  I think it is wonderful that you salute your son by displaying his unit patch.
