Larry Ricci remembers Rodger...

There is not a day that goes by that I don't think of him.  We were working with the rf
when we walked into an ambush.  He was up front in the lead with several rf's.  There
were 6 rf's between us when we got hit.  We pulled back not knowing that he had been
hit.  We went back through the village and found him.  August 27th is a day that is
hard to live with.  My father-in-law passed away three years ago on August 27th, so
it brought back some memories.
