In Memoriam>Hello! [RIP RandallFlagg]
Randallflagg 08:10 AM 11-04-2021
Hello folks here..


My name is Christopher and I am (was) RandallFlaggs son. I tried days ago to post a quick message about my Father but for some reason it wouldn't take?

My Father passed sometime between July 28th and August 30th of this year. He died attempting to help people who could not help themselves. I can't/won't go into much detail but needless to say, his family (my Mother, Sister and I) are devastated, however we know that he wouldn't have his service be any other way.

It was a private venture into another country and he was to provide logistic support for other men. Unfortunately, as they were achieving their goal of helping folks out, they faced an ambush and may Father and 2 others were killed. I have it on good authority though that he took several with him, though.

Mom talked about how much he loved engaging on this forum. She gave me his logon information and I thought I would post this quick note to inform all of his passing. Sorry, it has taken a while to commemorate Dad, but we were asked to "keep it under wraps" for a time.

Thanks to all of you who wrote to him on his time here.

Goodbye Chief!! You will be remembered forever. RIP Dad.

One of my Dad's best friends, a retired Colonel, who was with them on their trip has contacted my Dad's publisher and asked to do a "final chapter" in his book. They are currently working that out. As soon as it becomes available I will let you all know.

Still, I can not thank you all enough from the bottom of my heart for the kind messages that you have all posted. My Father, although "elderly" was never one to shy away from what he considered to be his duty. Mom tried to talk him out of going, but she knew it was a waste of time so, as many times in the past, she kissed him goodbye and told him "See you when you get back". Unfortunately, this was his last ride. Knowing my Father however, he would have wanted it this way.

Now, his ranch is on my shoulders to take care of and I will. Every day when I see the sun coming up, his horse stomping around in the barn, coffee on the stove, I think of him fondly.

God bless you all. Thanks again for your kind responses.

Christopher

That sucks. Sorry for your loss.

And here I thought he was elderly, undergoing cancer treatments and writing a book. I would love to learn more about his life and his final moments. It sounds like some hero stuff.

Randall was a great guy and we shared similar ideology. Really sad to hear this.

May you and your family have God's love and support as he welcomes your father, a true hero.

RIP

I'm so sorry to hear that news. Randall seemed like a good guy...straight shooter. And as it turns out, he definitely backed up his words with actions. I thank your father for his service and I thank you and your family for the support that undoubtedly allowed it.

RIP

I think most of us have a good idea of where he went. Balls of steel. God speed and thank you for your service.

Thanks mods for moving this. Can I speak my peace without this going back to DC?

If not...Fuck off. (just kidding you bunch of pansies).

True story....

I was outside mowing and couldn't help but but keep thinking of this thread. Stopped the mower and came inside to make a post that will get ignored.

Right wing, left wing....doesnt matter. Swallow your pride and say God Bless/Biden/Abdulag/Gondi/Trump.

I never thought we would see the day when we would fight each other over stupid shit. Covid/Non-Covid...Vaxed-NonVaxed...

At some point both sides need to just shake fucking hands and "agree to disagree"

I've lost family in the military and have more left in.

My son, to this day, knows respect. He is 10 years old and knows he better go shake the hand of a vet. We was at a McDs a couple of months a go and he got up and went to shake a hand.....the vet was confused. My son pointed to his hat and said thank you. Shook his hand and walked away.

We'll never know his name or see him again.....but it wouldn't have happened without people like Mr. Flagg.

I'd give my savings ($3.57) to have my 10 year old shake his hand and say thank you.

RIP Mr. Flagg

Agree. I hope his son will log on in the future with more info and let us know if Randall finished his book.

He told me it was done, and in the DC thread he confirms it by saying its 256 pages and 10 chapters

Christopher I'm so sad to hear the news your father. Hel was a man's man, he was very respectful to all and served his country honorably. What's more than meets the eye, he is one of many buildings pieces this country was built on. I give my condolences and may God give an abundance of Love, Comfort and Peace of Mind for you and your family. May you rest in peace Randall Flagg, Thank You for your service. I am honored to call you my friend. Until later brother, already miss ya!
