There is a fire base we go to quite a bit. IN the compound, at the base of the guard tower is a memorial. Last trip there this week, I noticed a guy working on it adding names. Big memorials on DC are nice, but to me it seems like a small one in the area that you ran ops is much more important, at least to those who knew you.

And the men....

Thanks for the pictures.

My boss and his family knew SSGT Jacob Frazier very well. I am sure they will like to see these photos. SSGT Frazier was from St. Charles, Illinois. St. Charles renamed their Post Office after SSGT Frazier.

Next time I get out that way, I will take a photo of the completed engraving. I'll tack it on this thread.

If you get a chance, read up on how SFC Robinson passed. You won't find it in any official DOD releases but the men in that community know and it is most certainly a heroic tale.
