I had the extreme pleasure and honor of meeting with this man and presenting him with MG Harold G. (Hal) Moore to my Air Command and Staff College class. I learned much, as a USAF officer from this amazing American Army Non-Com.

he was an absolute giant and commanded respect of all. when he marched on stage he was an intended surprise to the class and all present...when they realized who the man was before him they ALL jumped to their feet and the applause did not die for some time.

I loved that this man took it upon himself to join in with this presentation...he drove over from Georgia that morning in his Canary Yellow pick-up truck with the black 1st of the 7th Cav on each door.

Rest easy Sergeant Major, from the most greatful of nations to a real-American-Hero!

“We Were Soldiers”. The movie that gave us The Reagan Hymn.

Rest easy, Sarmajor.

I’m actually re-reading “We Were Soldiers Once...and Young” right now. What an amazing story and what amazing men.

“Gentlemen, prepare to defend yourselves!”

RIP Sergeant Major Plumley.

Never net him, only read about him and watched the movie, yet tears flow at this news. We need a replacement for him but how do we replace the irreplaceable?
