Sad when it happened and sad each time I see an update. He would have only been 51 year sold. 48 was way too young.

I will certainly make the time.

"Every day that starts with a cup of coffee with Mrs. AC is a good one, no matter what else happens along the way. I'm not taking any of them for granted.

Three years, gone but never forgotten.

I miss you brother.

Boy he would have really digged the election results :)

A painful loss for all of us.

I almost feel cheated that I wasn't a member of this forum when AC was still with us.. Rest in Peace, Brother.

Rest well in the light of His grace brother, and rejoice.

I sent this as a PM to Ricky earlier, he suggested I post it here and he is also forwarding the pics to Mrs. AC. Every year, at Christmas time this great AMERICAN organization, Wreathes Across America, descends on National Cemeteries all over e US and places a wreath at the head of the grave of EVERY single stone in that cemetery. I have witnessed this before as my parents have been interred in Arlington for some time, but last Saturday I had the privilege of watching and helping 26,000 folks, all volunteers make this happen on a 20 something freezing sleet kind of day.

Hi Ricky,
First off Merry Christmas to you and yours! Hope it is a peaceful season filled with joy and good health! I went to Arlington last Saturday for the Wreaths Across America event. There were 26.000 volunteers there in 20 degree freezing rain placing wreaths on each grave. It was time to make my annual visit to my parents, aunts and uncles, cousins, friends and of course AC. I though I'd send along some pics I took there, maybe you might forward one or two to Mrs. AC if you deem appropriate. I stopped and said a short prayer at each grave for them and all of us.

Mike, bless you for helping do that, and my deepest appreciation for sharing the experience and the pictures of it here. I salute you my friend!


USMC-Ken 12-24-2016 08:54 PM

Absolutely beautiful.. Thank you for sharing something so sacred.

US1911 12-24-2016 10:40 PM

Well done Mike ~ You're a Patriot! Thanks for sending this to Rich and thanks to Rich for the recommendation to share it with us.

Ricky T 12-25-2016 08:50 AM

Thanks Mike for sharing.

Merry Christmas Chuck. I miss you.

A touching tribute to those who have gone before us.

R0CKETMAN 12-26-2016 06:53 AM

What happened to AC's Yost Commander? Anybody have a pic?

Ricky T 12-26-2016 08:14 AM




R0CKETMAN 12-26-2016 04:48 PM

Man that's nice..

Don't see how AC couldn't prefer it over the CRG and Commercial.

Hope it stayed in the family.
