<p>
When you read this, I shall, of course, be gone, but I did not go willingly, nor gladly. I always was possessed with an unbounded zest for life that I reveled for all it was worth.</p>
<p>
As far back as I can remember, I wanted to be a soldier. At USMA, I was the grossest of cadets&mdash;at least initially. I was constantly deficient in math and on &quot;corrective exercise&quot; everything! Somehow, I muddled through, graduating in the upper 89% of my class&mdash;and even passing the turnout exam in analytical geometry&mdash;a<strong> </strong><em>first</em> for that event, so I&rsquo;m told.</p>
<p>
I had a hugely satisfying, but rather varied and bizarre, career in that I never was a staff officer but always a commander of sorts. I never was an S-1, 2, 3 or 4 or a G-1, 2, 3 or 4. Some of my commands were only small detachments, to be sure, but commands they were. I enjoyed tours with the Quartermaster Corps, Military Government, the Judge Advocate General Department, NATO, ROTC, and DIA (in the satellite reconnaissance business) was a National Guard advisor, and was Commandant of the Army Intelligence School of the Pacific. But the real ego trip was command of American soldiers in any capacity. I&rsquo;ve had more than my share of responsibility and combat. I commanded a rifle company in Normandy at age 21 and an Infantry battalion in the Korean War at age 28. To make colonel was my primary goal, which I achieved earlier than expected. Sorry to say, I <em>never</em> had the pleasure of serving with a classmate.</p>
<p>
I was supremely lucky in marrying a girl who loved the military as much as I did. Josie always was ready for a new assignment and a new post. She and my two sons accompanied me whenever possible. Two grandchildren arrived later on.</p>
<p>
I became addicted to golf. The lush, endless fairways, soft summer days, and the unspoken camaraderie of a regular foursome were heaven on earth for me!</p>
<p>
To sum it up, I thought I was a good officer, Lord knows I was a good soldier. I loved the Army and my soldiers. I&rsquo;m sure they recognized this, as they seemed to reciprocate in kind.</p>
<p>
So now I depart the scene, leaving a small void behind&mdash;missed by a few and not aware of being detested by any. I shall wait patiently in Arlington National Cemetery for my Josie to come to me, then we shall go hand-in-hand again, to our final PCS, and maybe even a permanent starting time.</p>
<p>
Sayonara,</p>
