CPT Travis Patriquin, a Tribute- Thanks Blackfive

Posted by Reid on December 26, 2007

I am proud to be an American with the brilliant members of our military serving as they do and their sacrifices are not unheeded by us civilians. I thought many of you would enjoy this who seen this before but it having it with the tribute to who designed it is nice.

Back Five Tribute For the full story but an excerpt here…

Last December Travis Patriquin died along with two others in an IED blast. This December he would not even recognize the al Anbar Province he was helping to transform. He became famous for his Powerpoint on “How to win in Anbar” and helped in ways far above his pay grade to push the change to a Counter-Insurgency (COIN) strategy. It is too bad he is not here to see what has become of his stick figures, but we are. So thanks CPT P, from all of us.
