Mike Ramsey is being honored by Lumpkin County and the community he serves in September. The ceremony will begin 07 September at 1800, at the L.C. Park and Rec Community Center. Itís located off Riley Rd. in Dahlonega. It would be great to have as many Rangers as we can muster-up that served with Mike come and help us recognize him. Hopefully CFM will have a group of active duty folks and leaders participating as well. If you did not know, Mike was inducted into the 2017 class of the Ranger Hall of Fame. There will be additional info / details as the time gets closer.

On a separate note; thank you to everyone who posted a message or sent a direct e-mail regarding the recent passing of 1SG (RET) Andy Howard. His send off was with full military honors and he will be missed by all. He helped so many, yet asked for so little in return. His eulogy and service epitomized the life of an Airborne Ranger.

Message: I graduated class 2-61 Andy was an instructor on what was then mountaineering committee. I was assigned to that committee in July '63 MSG Wolcott was the NCOIC we all called him 8. Most all of us was on a first name basis. Capt.Woodward was the committee chief and we called him "Chief" Lt. Col TASSEY Was the camp Commander. Later Andy transferred to Alaska. In '65 I volunteered for RVN. I returned to MRC as a member of that committee. Andy was the NCOIC I never worked for a better man than Andy. He was always concerned about his men and and the students always being very fair in job assignments and evaluations. I worked with Delso, Columbo, Rumph,Phillips, Stafford,terrifc men AND NCO'S. Andy ran a tight committee and the men were tight. All the best to His family. Rest easy Andy.

Message: Hey Chuck. That'd be for the "Honor Flight!" Great opportunity for the Veterans to visit the Monuments(Service,) in D.C. It's wonderful to see these guys and gals as they get ready to travel. It's a one day/all day tour. Chartered A/C. We've had two from Lexington in the past couple of years. The send off and welcoming home crowd is always amazing. I would encourage support, even if ya only go down and wave at them, 'specially the Vietnam Vets. They also recruit Volunteers (Escorts,) to accompany the Veterans. All in all, a wonderful opportunity to honor our fellow Veterans. Jim RLTW/L&P
