Thank you all for remembering Aaron. Not only on this somber day, but every day. We must continue to tell their stories so their legacies and memories don't turn to dust in the wind.

RIP. I would love to see Karl's commemorative elk hunt honoring Aaron brought back to the top! :salute:
haha! Good luck dredging up that dumpster fire :chuckle:

None of their memories will turn to dust here, buddy. Ain’t happening.

I remember that day when it was posted on HW, a few days later a flight of Black Hawks flew over the house heading for Gray Field. It was a very  somber day for me. RIP CPT Blanchard

Fallen, but never forgotten. Aaron is a true hero and should continue to live on with all of the lives he touched.
The best friend a guy could have asked for. RIP chasing pheasants in heaven Denali girl.

"They shall grow not old, as we that are left
grow old:  Age shall not weary them, nor the
years condemn.  At the going down of the sun
and in the morning we will remember them.”


I never met Aaron but I wish I had. America needs heroes now more than ever and he certainly is one. RIP Aaron, for your mission is done.
