He was told by the BC/CSM to "not stick the new PSG with it because we are really short on E7s in RGT...find some lower enlisted guys to dump this on". Years later Green apologized via proxy to a mutual bud of ours at the Q when they both went through, so I guess he knew it was wrong...

Bonham was Yoda.

That guy was the biggest piece of shit I ever had in my chain of command. He is retired now, and lives across the street from my ex-brother-in-law at Bragg.

Tons of stories about his idiocy, all for another thread....

Pretty sure he was the OIC of the Gulag at that time(?)....he was prior-enlisted 13F from 1/75....grew up with Dennis Donegan and Ted Yates; they all reported to LT Sawyer, the FIST God. Good dude. Wonder what he did to warrant the RHOF?

Yea, he was OIC and Siter (MSG at the time) was NCOIC. Both Guard IIRC, good dudes. Love to find out if J.D. is the same Kirby.

Are you guys confusing Purple Hayes with Fred " Grape Ape" Reed? Was in the March or Die Platoon in A Co.
