in iraq:


picture of the gate to his base in ramadi taken from a humvee (photo was on jordan's camera) - jordan and another marine were killed when the gate and guard shack (large pile of sandbags to right of gate) were leveled by a truck bomb a few days after this picture was taken:




i like to think that i gave him some motorcycle riding ops on our little dirtbikes and his first 'big bike' experience piloting my tw200 for a short ride in the yard... It sure would be nice to have him around still now that his cousins (my kids) are licensed and riding - i'm sure he would be with them riding his dad's klr or vfr. We all miss him dearly.
look like a fine young man well raised thanks to him and his fam ily for raising him and fior their sacrifice , i have a son in afganistan noe and one that was in iraq . Thanks again and sorry for you loss . AiRBORNE
