Rest easy, see you at the ORP.

Quite a career, with sons that have followed in his boot prints.

RIP.
I had the pleasure of crossing paths over the years with this Quiet Warrior. 1996-7 I was his operations law and intelligence oversight attorney. All I can say is this is a tremendous loss to the nation and to our community.

WTF a fucking lawnmower.
So sad.
He was my first XO at B\2\75th.
Ran like a freaking Deer.
Lots of great stories from back then.
He was one hell of a Leader!!!
