1st Lt. Robert �"Rob" Wilson II, a former aviation officer assigned to the 1st Battalion, 227th Aviation Regiment, 1st Air Cavalry Brigade, 1st Cavalry Division holds his young son, now 1st Lt. Robert Wilson III, a platoon leader assigned to Company D of the 2nd �"Lancer" Battalion, 5th Cavalry Regiment, 1st �"Ironhorse" Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division in May 1989 in Killeen, Texas. This picture was taken only months before Rob was killed in a helicopter crash during training. �"I�'m told frequently by my mom and by (my dad�'s) parents that I�'m very similar to how he was," Wilson said. �"It gives me a pretty clear picture of how he was as a person, which I never really got to experience."
