Weiler Kappel, 1, clings to his father's leg before his father leaves with the 3rd Light Armored Reconnaissance Battalion for Afghanistan April 26, 2012. He is the son of Capt. Clint Kappel, operations officer, 3rd LAR. Weiler had rubbed his chocolate-streaked face across his dad's knee to which his father remarked that the resulting stain was just another momento from his son that he gets to take with him.
