Col Robert Howard died on 23 Dec. He was our nations most highly decorated soldier with 1 Medal of Honor (MOH) and 3 nominations for the MOH, 2 Distinguished Service Crosses, Silver Star, etc with 8 Purple Hearts for over 14 documented wounds. That is not counting the Red Chinese belt buckle that he had framed in his office. Was not given; but taken! :D

He was a true warrior and it was my privilege to work with and for him from 1981-1984 at JFKSWC at Fort Bragg.

In recognition of those who served and died, on this Memorial Day I will resurrect this old thread with some pictures I took at the funeral.

There were 21 Congressional Medal of Honor receipts there and each placed a white rose on his casket.







And then just for me and my memories of another great man who I actually knew. My B-Team CO.

Thank you for remebering and sharing. Goes right to the core of me. Some of those Medal of Honor Men I know I've seen before in a documentary or two.

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

Nightforce is such a solid combo of reticle, available elevation, glass that is good enough to shoot at the longest range you can dial. Nightforce has bullet proof construction that can handle the incidental horse rolling or some other rodeo action. -- bigngreen


Nightforce ATACR Scope Review
By Jeff Brozovich

The new NightForce ATACR is for sure a top choice for any long range shooter. Read More


The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
