Obama doesn't remember name of soldier on his wrist

After McCain talked about the bracelet from the mother of a slain soldier, Obama mentioned that he had one, too.

Obama: Jim, let me just make a point. I've got a bracelet, too.

(Looks up, adjusts wrist, looks down at wrist)

Obama: From sergeant... uh.. (adjusts wrist) uh, from the mother of sergeant Ryan David Jopek (phonetic). Given to me in Green Bay. And she asked me, can you please make sure another mother isn't going through what I'm going through?

Gaffe, or not? Comparable to him not bothering to visit the wounded soldiers in Germany?
