MOH Howard Dedication
 
http://www.fayobserver.com/news/2017...t-camp-mackall

A building at MCK was dedicated to COL. Howard. If nothing more the stories of his exploits in the article are worth a read for the awe factor.

How anyone ever has a problem remaining humble when men such as COL Howard exist is beyond me. Thanks for the post HM.

I had the honor of spending time with COL Howard on a few different occasions. He was a hard man. Humble, yet self-confident. I don't have the words to describe my respect for him.

He was a true man among men! He set a great example for what it means/meant to be a true Warrior!

It's about time. He was/is a legend. Went through PHI in Jul 82 and he was Camp Commandant....

Gotta couple more stories, but to hurting (physically) to type right now...

It weren't no cakewalk...selection these days ....bwaaaa (not really, it does kick ass, and suck.) You can Thank Col Potter for that.

Congrats COL Howard, and may you RIP

Those are the words I would certainly use; it was an "Honor" to spend any time with the man and no one in my experience was deserving of more "Respect".
"Privilege" also comes to mind.

Ditto. I was fortunate to serve with him in Recon Company, CCC. Hell of a man, and a real tough example to follow. If you see the pictures (in Plaster's book and all over the Internet) of him carrying a wounded NVA POW, that's me in the funny hat following him (in full BRIGHT LIGHT gear) as bodyguard :-) My pictures too: gave my 35mm to a buddy to photograph the team's return since I knew I'd have my hands full.

My greatest regret is not complying with Wolcoff's suggestion / invitation to come to the funeral in Arlington. I was busy / poor / old car, just didn't think it would work out. I'm sorry about that now.

The few times I have been to Arlington, I always go by and pay my respects. Its never too late.
