Had these tags made to carry in my ruck to honor family and friends that have passed and served in the military. Told my son Hudson about each one.

I knew Bob for over 40 years and we served together.. He was the god father to my daughter and oldest son. Bob was one of the finest people to have ever lived. He had honor, integrity, kindness and was a true believer in the good in his fellow man. To me, he was a friend, one to whom I would entrust my life. I will miss him. Rest in Peace Bob, you have certainly earned it.
