It is with deep sadness that I inform you of the passing of MSG(RET) Enos Ward. Enos worked at SFAS when I went through in 1991, and Phase 13 in 1992. A true Quiet Professional who wasn't above helping the new guys learn the ropes. a true warrior, brother, and friend. Enos spent the majority of his SF career with the 10th SFG(A) in Ft Devens, Bad Toelz, and Ft Carson. He was also a member of this website.

Enos, you may be gone, but you won't be forgotten!!!

RIP, Top!

I knew Enos for many many years, going all the way back to our 10th Group days at Ft Devens. We HALO'd and rode our Harleys together, elk hunted together, taught our boys to elk hunt together, and watched as our boys turned into men and join the Army. And I think we may had even shared a little Jim Beam together. Sitting around the fire at Elk Camp this year will not be the same......Enos, you will be greatly missed.

Rest in peace my Brother.

Damn... Very sorry to hear this. I met Enos when my team went to HAVE ACE and he was one of the coordinators there. He was a good man. Rest in peace, Enos.

Sad news... Go well Enos you will be missed. I'm glad to have gotten back in touch here on PS after a long break in contact.

Requiescat in Pace, Enos.

I had the privilege of serving with him in Stuttgart from 2000 to 2001 at 1/10. A fine NCO and Soldier and a damn good man.

You will be missed.

08-16-2009, 15:04
FYI- Enos had a cyst in his throat and cause of death will not be known until early next week when an autopsy is done. His wife Peggy has asked us to get this out because she’s getting all kind of crazy emails of cause of death. Please pass this on and we will put out more dates and information as we get them.

08-16-2009, 15:54
Wow! I'm blown away. Enos was my neighbor at Carson and I've known him for a long time. I also reconnected thru here, just spoke with him, via email, a couple of weeks ago. Damn good man!

I was lucky enough to have served with Enos in the 10th SFG(A). He was an honorable man who loved HALO operations. His knowledge of UW was unsurpassed. Life is short so always give 110%. Have a great HALO insertion Enos into the ultimate UWOA and we'll all be inserted into your AO before you know it!

Enos was born into this world to be one thing.......A Special Forces Soldier. And he was damn good one. One of the best. He loved the life of SF. It was in his blood. He lived his everyday life as a Green Beret. We were proud of him and proud to be part of the SF family. He taught us all well, his boys learned life is never fair but if you stand tall and take it on like a man you will succeed. I spent 21 years as his wife, it wasn't always perfect but I loved Enos. He taught me many of life's survival skills. And for that I am eternally greatfull. He was a warrior, but most of you don't know he did have a soft side. He loved his boys and was very proud of them. Our oldest made him a Grandpa of three........which that is where his soft side came out. He loved those grandbabies. His youngest followed in his footsteps and joined the Army and made his dad beem with pride. Anyone who ever served with Enos knew him as a great warrior and leader. Enos never followed......he always led the way and set the example and stanadard. Which he was always above. It's so hard to believe he's gone, but he will never be out of our hearts. Enos, I know you are up there looking down telling us were all a bunch of sissies for crying, but damn it we cant be stoic all the time. We love you and will miss you. Thank you for giving me the life I had with you and thank you so much for our boys. RIP

Thanks for sharing.

If anyone of you remeber Henry Koenig, could you please let him know about Enos. I've lost contact with him over the years. he and Enos were close in the early years, back when we were really just kids. He can contact me at vward64@yahoo.com

Sad news indeed, Enos will be missed.

Flat, dumb and happy. Blues Skies Enos.

by Daze

Mission complete:
As we arrived for the visitation last night ,and for the services today for MSG. Ward, I saw several people that I knew and spoke with them before, during and after the visitation and services.
What I had not known until then, was that they were all part of MSG Ward's family, giving this honor mission even more of a personal meaning. As we formed and stood our flag line last night, many of the men of MSG Wards unit came through and shook our hands, as did numerious family members and friends. Thanking us for being there.
Major Holder and the members of MSG Wards unit joined us in forming the line to render honors as the family and MSG ward left the church for the last time.
At the cemetary, two lines were again formed, one of the PGR members, and the other of both active duty and retired Special Forces to render honors to their HERO as he was carried by his brothers in arms to his rest.
Military honors were accorded to MSG Ward at graveside, and his wife and sons were presented with flags by his unit.
Thank you to toe family of MSG Ward for extending the invitation to the Patriot Guard to join them and his Brothers in the Special forces in honoring his service in defending our freedoms.
He will not be forgotton but remembered as a HERO.
This honor mission had a positive side note.
As we staged for the services today, we received news that the Buses carrying the 256th from Ft. Stuart back to Camp Blanding were headed our way, and would be passing our location in Callahan prior to MSG Wards services.
A flag line was set along side of U.S. 301, and as the busses carrying them home passed, we welcomed them with flags and waves. We gave them a send off when they deployed, and told them we would welcome them home. All members of the unit returned safely
A thank you to all who participated today, both in the Honoring of MSG Wrad, and welcoming home our other troops.
Job well done to all.

I don't know how I missed this one. So sad. Enos was one of my SFAS cadre in 91 and Phase 13 cadre in 1992. He was one of my first team daddy's best friends and used to stop by the team room periodically and we'd all head out to lunch. He was one of the best and most professional soldiers I ever met.

Thank you for everything, Enos. You will be sorely missed. Rest in peace, brother.

I'm not sure how I missed this thread. MSG Enos Ward stopped by my ANCOC class in Jan. 1992. He was visiting one of his fellow team members in the course. He sat in for better part of the morning, participated in some discussion, then left. I remember him, thinking, his guy had it right.

Had not Enos recently join PS.com, not that long ago?

MSG Ward, rest easy brother, I'm honored to have met you.

I am prior service 19E, 19K and 88M, I have 9 1/2 years prior service. I am in the guard now and am assigned to the 20th Group. I am a 911( trauma junkie) paramedic. I have 14 years exp. as a paramedic in Georgia and Alabama.

I am nothing of myself, but I have had the sublime honor and privilege of serving with some of the finest America has to offer. My service with the 5th SFGA was in the late 1970s. I did some other stuff of which my boss in the DCD was very happy and I got to depart on a good note under the Carter administration. My main regret is that I did not see the "Reagan" at the end of the tunnel. I, personally, must say at this time that CSM Georg Moskaluk was the finest American soldier with whom I'd ever had the privilege to serve during my service. RIP good and honorable soldier.

RIP MSG Ward. I do believe he was the cadre at SFAS that I recall demonstrating the rope climb obstacle. He did this by climbing up two ropes at the same time, left hand on one rope, right hand on the other, shimmied right to the top (feet be damned)... All of which gave me serious pause to consider my own manhood and a few other troubling thoughts. That's what a leader should be about.

10-04-2010, 15:43
To those who knew Enos Ward, I wanted to let you that don't know he has a memorial page on Face Book -Enos Ward Memorial. Please check it out and post any memories, photos or respects. His sons would greatly appreciate them.

I'm not an SF soldier but as a former ETT on the Pakistan border and in Zormat I had the distinct honor of working with several. As I prepare for my third NG OEF deployment, I just wanted to pass along my thanks to you and your families for the extremely difficult things you do. Respectfully, Zormat.
