Best Friends Captain John Passet now Major Passet. If you have not noticed John and I went through the Academy together. John was also the best man at my wedding and is close to making LTC and retirement with twenty plus years of service.
Best Moment Returning to Btry A 1-121 FA as the Commander and some of the old guys are still there from when I was a Corporal. I had two gentlemen retire from the Guard that year and they said that they stayed in only because it was rumored that I was going to be the Commander and wanted to retire after I took Command because they thought so highly of me.
