I had the honor and priviledge to spend some time with a former CSM from 1st SFGA on Saturday night at Blade Show (in Atlanta). He recently retired from 1st, and spent a good amount of time from his night to talk to me about a bit of everything. I'm not sure if he's a member here or not, but I just wanted to express my gratitude to him for the experience, and voice my admiration.

Hope to hear from you,

Joe

CSM Perry looks the same as he did 20 years ago. Whats really cool about seeing him is that when talking with him you feel 20 years younger. Too bad for him tough, he must feel 30 years older seeing us....hmmmmm just a thought...ha ha .. If you see this my brother hope all is well!!! Tony Cross here.

I remember on a freezing night in in Canada a young Cpt wanted us to go out in sub zero tempratures and break down pallets. A certain SGM disagreed with the Cpt. and suggested we do it in the morning when it would be a little warmer. The Cpt. insisted we do it and the SGM insisted we don't. The Cpt. verged on giving the SGM a direct order. The SGM replied " There are only two ranks with stars in them in the army and your is not one of them Cpt." Needless to say we didnt break down the pallets until the morning.

Excellent bro.....just like CSM Perry D. always looking out for the troops. I remember working for CSM when he was a 1SG in Phitsanluk, Thailand. I was a young buck SGT 63B type and he motivated me and set the example of what an 18 series is all about. I ended up going to selection and spending the rest of my career as an 18.

Cheers to skygod and awesome leader CSM Perry D.

I personally witnessed said SGM in a similar situation in the FRG and it involved an LT with a serious attitude. The SGM was a SSG at the time and just before he shipped off to the Q course. The LT had a missing camp stove and he "assumed" one of the guys in the Pathfinder detachment had it, so he pulled up to our shack and yelled our for everyone to stand next to their wall locker for a H&W inspection. Perry put a stop to it immediately since he realized most of us would have been screwed since we often carried pyro and live rounds in our lockers. Perry pulled the LT into his office which was quickly followed by loud voices. When Perry concluded his counseling the LT burst from the office and double timed from the shack. Shortly thereafter Perry walked back to the team room and instructed us to "sanitize" our wall lockers and then the last comment he made before heading back to his office was: "the LT is missing his stove, if you happen to know where it is, make sure he gets it back.":)

He is one hell of a great guy. I served with him the Philippines and recently ran into him on a flight from SEATAC to Dallas. Looked the same as he had last time i had seen him.

If you are reading this rest assured that I fulfilled the mission you gave me and that gentleman made his connecting flight to Mexico. It certainly taxed my very limited command of Spanish but I made it work.
