I was his Command Sergeant Major when he assumed command of the 1st Bde, 9th Infantry Division in 1977. He was a soldier and a commander of the highest degree. He was a full Colonel at the time and arrived from command in Alaska. I couldn't have asked for a more worthy Commander as I ended my Army career. A true honor it was to serve so close to him. RIP General... Ronald J. Soden, CSM, Ret
