My nephew is attached to the 101 Airborne Division's Long Range Reconisance Patrol (LRRP) unit. The LRRP's are made up of highly specialized and highly trained 6 man teams for the most dangerous missions. As such, we are never allowed to know where he is or what he's doing.
Before my nephew left for Iraq he purchased a big package of American flag decals (the sleeve patches with the gold braid) to hand out as his "signature".
I was absolutely floored when I saw this report on 60 minutes
this weekend. My nephew is the soldier that pulled him out.
I'm still stunned. He's alive and doing what he loves.
