The couple in question happen to be Ltc Bartley O’Toole and one of his two sons, Senior Airman Bartley O’Toole.
Both are located in the same unit which is the 774th Expeditionary Anti-aircraft Squadron. The armed services try all that they can not to place family members in the same unit. During the Civil War local militias were generally composed of most of the male inhabitants of a single area so whenever there was a devastating battle and a lot of losses chances were good that one or more families had lost all of its male members. Believe it or not the concept of leaving surviving male family members to carry on the family name is biblical.
In hard times hard decisions to have to be made so both Airmen volunteered to go to serve in Operation Enduring Freedom. I would be honored to produce two momentos for them and I guess that you know what I would like to produce rings for them of course and you know that they would be Operation Enduring Freedom Rings.
