As most of you know, Rarely do I do a story in Military History , but I missed Memorial Day, And Rarely do I do a dedication to my articles , But I take a profound Honor in dedicating this story to Major Thomas Earnhardt,Public Affairs Officer/82nd Airborne Division/Ft.Bragg,NC. A true “Devil in Baggy Pants”! In this world in which we live, we often refer to a term that says "Respect is Earned". Anglico ,who was a military officer and others here will know what I am talking about.
Tom Earnhardt has done just that, He has earned my respect & admiration over the past few months. Not only by sticking to his guns with a request I made of the 82nd but by being one of those rarest of the rarest of Officers. Those who speak the Truth and whose word is their bond. So Tom , Anglico and our other veterans here, this is for you!
