Message: Sad news to report.

I just learned that CSM Willie Snow has recently passed. He was a true friend to the USMRA and a founding member of WAR. He was a superlative Ranger and member of the class of 2016 Ranger Hall of Fame. I have no other details at this time. The Big Ranger in the Sky has called another home to the final patrol base. RLTW!
