This wasn't posted last year, but here's the story from a local Fayetteville, NC article and a photo from another source.

Bush attends memorial for 82nd Airborne troopers
By KEVIN MAURER
Associated Press Writer


FORT BRAGG, N.C. — President Bush read from the Book of Isaiah Thursday during a private memorial ceremony for families of 82nd Airborne Division paratroopers killed in Iraq and Afghanistan, promising that he and first lady Laura Bush grieve with them.

"I know this hurts. You need to try and stay strong," Bush said, according to Liz Perkins, whose 27-year-old stepson Andrew was killed in Samarra, Iraq, in March 2007.

"He was very nice and very tearful in his eyes when he said that," she said.

Bush spoke briefly at the private rededication of the 82nd's memorial to paratroopers killed in Iraq and Afghanistan. The memorial was recently expanded because there is no more room for the names of the dead on its original granite column.

The 82nd has lost 165 members in Iraq and Afghanistan. The division suffered 87 fatalities last year, more than in any other year since the wars began.

During the ceremony, about 150 "Gold Star" family members were invited to place yellow roses at the base of the memorial's 12-foot granite column. Bush greeted the family members, hugging and posing for pictures.

"It was like burying him all over again," Perkins said. "Right now I am very haunted and it brought back a lot of memories of how he died."

Bush's visit to Fort Bragg - his fourth since taking office - coincided with "All-American Week," at the Army post. The 82nd's traditional homecoming was canceled last year because nearly the entire division was fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Before taking part in the memorial ceremony, President Bush spoke at the division's review ceremony, toured a barracks and met with a Special Forces team that recently returned from Afghanistan.

Maj. Gen. Thomas R. Csrnko, commander of Army Special Forces Command, and Maj. Gen. James W. Parker, commander of the JFK Special Warfare Center and School, presented Bush with an honorary Green Beret in a shadow box with insignia from all seven Special Forces Groups.

They also gave him a Yarborough Knife, created by the late Lt. Gen. William Yarborough who was instrumental in the buildup of Special Forces, and a silk scarf for the first lady.

Paperwork sent to SWC for the autho, in waiting mode to drop cash and go back into wait mode for the Y-Knife.

I'm in a quandary though - my GB was handed to me and signed by this Oregon logger, so which one for the field...

Hell, my "Y" is signed by the same Oregon logger, who HAD to have access to a particular DeLorean, and I use it (the Y) whenever I get to the "woods"!!

If you're not willing to expose it to the real world, I can set you up with a GB!!



Later.

Martin, I have 3 Chris Reeve Knives and a 4th "Yarborough Serial Numbered Knife on the way" Two of the knives are 50th Anniversary 1st SFG (Abn) numbered knives. Also have 2 numbered Professional Soldier Chris Reeve Knives, My question is this If you lost one of the numbered knives would a very honest person be able to return it to the owner based on the serial number?

The new batch of knives will start with serial number SF-0001.
Why didn't they start where they left off? The first ones did not have the "SF-" in front of the serial number.

Ok, I've been waiting for a month for the letter to come back to me... Anybody know how long it's taken in the past?
