pi symbol?

ok, i hate to do another post on army stuff, but that's sort of what i am immersed in at the time...

when we moved to clarksville, tn i started to see this red pi-sign sort of symbol. i saw it on the back of cars, i saw it on flags outside of houses, i saw it on t-shirts. at first, i thought there was a huge math club following here in clarksville. oh no, it's not a pi sign. it's a rakkasan. and let me tell you, people are obsessed.

i haven't seen it as just a little car sticker - i've seen it take up the entire back window. a rakkasan is the symbol for some brigade? battalion? i don't know, and the less i know, the better. i just want to make sure you understand that it isn't normal. zach's battalion or brigade (whatever, but i think battalion) doesn't go around flaunting its silly symbol, which i think is a bulldog... it's only the people who are rakkasans that go crazy over it. i don't get it.

DISCLAIMER: if you or someone you love is a "rakassan", i don't mean to offend you... but can we agree that it has gotten out of hand?

I am the mother of a soldier and he is a Rakkasan. I also flaunt the Rakkasan symbol on my car and I live here in California! It's not about being crazy It's about being proud, and I am! Hooah!!!!
