A great man and Ranger!

When he came to our sector in Northern Iraq in 2003, he got off the Blackhawk, walked over to me and my BC and said, "You're still fucking ugly."

It was Manous F (Skip) Boles Jr (RIP) that drove the bulldozer; he was a Squad Leader in the Platoon (2/A/1-75) when I went back to 1/75...
