Thanks for the photos, I now salute a fellow soldier in honor of his ultimate sacrifice for his country and family. May his child grow to know that their father died a true hero. Gob Bless him, and his family, thanks for sharing once again.

I have been resisting looking at this thread because I have a heavy heart for all of those who lose their life in service to our country.
As my eyes welled up reading your post and now seeing the picture of your wonderful son, I find myself now saying a prayer for him.
What a wonderful tribute the jeep is.
May God bless you and your son. Thank you for sharing this tribute.

Thank you all so much for your thoughts, wishes, prayers, and wonderful comments.
And thank you to those of you who also served... you are the heart and soul of our wonderful country.
Here's a link to a news story about Elijah, with photos. One look at his photos and you will know the kind, gentle, honorable, and quiet man he was.
