Our 2011 Rubicon Call of Duty honors our son

Some pics of our Rubicon ~ Call of Duty ~ Black Ops... we like the look of this model and especially the wheels, taillight grills, gas cap cover, etc.

We're not so much into the COD game itself, however our son (who gave his life in Afghanistan, defending our freedom) was a serious COD fan/player in his day.

For us, our Jeep COD serves as a tribute to our son, who truly did answer the "real" Call of Duty in defense of this wonderful country of ours.

For us, this Jeep honors US Army Sgt. Elijah J. Rao, KIA by IED in Afghanistan, on the morning of December 5, 2009.

A more than fitting tribute to your son. His memory is surely honored. As an Army veteran each loss is a heartache to us all.

One silent round, for those who sleep.
To fallen comrades, absent friends.

My heartfelt Thanks for raising a son who was willing to stand up for this great Nation and defend the very freedoms we so often take for granted.
