Bob Visits Fort Bragg on his Coast x Coast Journey

It’s the last leg of Bob’s Coast x Coast trip honoring Andrew Pedersen-Keel and today, he visited Fort Bragg… the largest military base in the world (with more than 50,000 active duty personnel). Bob had the opportunity to meet with Andrew’s Special Ops Unit, ODA 3126. (ODA means “Operational Detachment Alpha.”) See the photo below of the new ODA 3126 team. There are only three members of the team remaining in ODA 3126 from when Andrew was the team leader. The other members have moved on to other positions within the armed services or have been discharged from service.

Bob also visited the memorial markers for all 3rd Special Forces group soldiers that have been KIA… particularly, he visited Andrew’s memorial marker as seen above and below. Kneeling with Bob at Andrew’s marker is Nate Schuler. Nate was on Andrew’s team and is still with ODA 3126 today.
