Norman Harold Lambert
I knew Norm Lambert as a kid. He was USMC in Korea and later, when Vietnam broke out, tried to-rejoin USMC but was rejected due to being married with kids. He joined the Army instead and went SF. Norm told me "When I traveled, I always traveled with the best."

RIP Norm...

RIP and thank you for your service, and volunteering at Motts Military Museum.

A neat little museum that keeps expanding, and it goes out of its way to make everyone feel welcome.

I went to Columbus State for numerous years off and on taking the basic courses.

I wonder if I ever took a class he instructed.
