I served with him off and on staring in 87 at fort "devo". Good man, he had a great family and one sweet 1970 police harley. Weird how a non-SF unit is doing the right thing for him.

He was a resident of Lake City which isn't all that far away from Jackson could be the reason. Plus a lasting impression I'm sure on the new recruits who pass through the halls there.

Godspeed and rest easy SGM.
