Welcome IA. This welcome thread is a hoot. lol Webcams?
By using the admin function to inflate their post count by at least 30,000, that's how.
I had no idea! I remember Skytrooper well.
How fucking awful. Wish someone had said something sooner....or if they did, I missed it.
*cry* *cry* *cry*
Me and Sky go way back. I met him in Ft Benning back in the mid 80's. We both went on to serve in Italy and at Bragg together. We even had orders to go to RIP together but I broke my arm in training before school started. Then we both were assigned to the 2/325th before he became a Black Hat at Airborne School.
The last time I saw him he was riding his motorcycle with his huge grin he always wore. I was a pallbearer at his funeral. Over a 1000 people attended. Not only military brass and his buddies but it seems he had a few friends from his home town of Moncks Corner SC. Everyone that met the guy loved him. He was buried in his family plot by his mother and father.
His son graduated from Airborne School in 2007. I pinned his wings on in place of his father. It was a honor to be friends and know such a great man that not only loved and fought for his country but was one of the most caring and nicest guys you ever wanted to meet.
A fine tribute Soul. I didn't know him even on USMB, but you've made me like and respect him, and appreciate you for the good friend that you certainly were/are.
I do not remember him all that well, but the vague memories I do have was of a very good guy.
It's terribly sad to hear of his passing.
My condolences to his family and to his friends.
i will welcome you to the board.
