One of my favorites was when I was A SSG and we were in Pinion Canyon and all of our brass was waiting for you , the Division CSM to land, many of the 1SG’s, Commanders, and Staff were all waiting for their 5 minutes of face time with the Div CSM. Your UH-60 landed and you spotted me and bypassed all who were waiting to come say hello, I’ll miss you my friend……………………..You were a Soldiers Soldier!!
