First, thank you for your service.

Second, with $15,000 you can get a nice front end. I would get either a Brauner Phanthera ($2,200 new), Lauten Oceanus ($1,500 new), or a Manley Reference C ($2,800 new). For a pre, your Avalon is nice but I would get a BAE 1073MPF ($1,500 new for a 1 channel) or Empirical Labs Mike-E ($1,599 new). The Mike-E has a compressor/saturator to thicken things up but if you get the BAE or another Neve flavor, I'd grab a Tube-Tech CL1B compressor to track through ($3,100 new). If you already have the rosetta 200 you don't have to worry about converters. That only costs about half of your budget.
