Stories

SFC King was the epitome of a professional soldier. He was my "Tack" or lead NCO when I attended Drill Sergeant School in Ft. Leonard Wood, Missouri. He was a pretty tough guy, but for all the right reasons. He made the course interesting, challenging and in the end...satisfying. Being of small stature, going thru the school was definitely demanding both physically and mentally . One of the remarks SFC King made to me one day, has stayed with me forever. He called me; " a tough little wop." It was certainly a compliment coming from a career soldier of his stature. Sgt. King, you may be gone, but you will never be forgotten. Rest in Peace, my friend, you were simply the best.
