Rest in Peace Desert Eagle.
Talked to Ski & Danny right after the news broke. He reminded me it was 6 years to the day that 26 got hit. That team had a rough go that rotation. After he was MEDEVAC’d, I sent Danny to take his place and he was in the circle when the Afghan opened up with the PKM later that Spring.

Desert Eagles!
