Tomb Reflections

Sergeant First Class Allen Eldredge selected me to become a sentinel. I was assigned to the 2nd relief and Richie Azzaro trained me. My first RC was Staff Sergeant Bob Short. The other 2 RCs were Bill Spates and Morris Moore. There were many changes to these names but the mission and dedication remained constant.
I last walked the mat on 8FEB67 and was discharged from active duty the following day.
