Thank french, for bringing to my attention the life of this useful and delightful man.
On a sadder note though may I bring your atten. to the life and death of another officer and gentleman. You'll find that in a late post from 'stonker' on the Baghdad thread.

Thanks goodkurtz. A very tragic tale.

It seems the bodycount of honourable people who've 'been there and done it' grows. I'd say these two were very similar - true men of action and total believers. Most people would feel quite humbled.

But this kind of courage and honour is markedly absent further up the greasy pole. In fact, decency, reliability and trustworthiness are bars to progress.
