Pictures and text by Patrick Shrier
These pictures were taken at Fort Bragg in April, 2008.
This picture is of a memorial brick that is located in the aircraft park behind the museum. I would guess that it was placed there by members of his unit. We did the same in my unit for one of the soldiers in my troop that was killed in 2004. I actually think that one is the most touching, he must have been a hell of a guy for his buddies to go out of their way to place a memorial.
