Rest in Peace, Ranger Steadfast. Thank you for your service and for your wisdom.

When Jake's family gets the paperwork together, I wil begin the process tol ensure his remains are placed in Arlington National Cemetery. Given the backlog at Arlington, it may take six months until he is buried. RLTW!

I loved Jake like he was my own fresh and blood......maybe more. I haven't been around here lately because I really didn'the know what the fuck to say. To say that I'll miss him would be totally inadequate. However, I'll always cherish the great memories of alll the fun times with him!


We all know what a great Warrior he was.....fighting hard to the end. But like his screen name implied, he was a Steadfast, loyal friend.

Rest easy brother, and save a seat for me in the Great Hall.
