MSG(R) Sydney Niels Jensen RIP

MSG(R) Sydney Niels Jensen

After my first quarter at the UofM, I, like most students, walked over to the Armory to check our grades. Standing at the top of the stairs ogling the students was SFC Jensen and soon to retire SGM Zabitosky (yeah, that Zabitosky). Wearing a OG field jacket with an SF patch and all my badgefinder bling - I was pretty easy to clock. Long story short - I signed up for accelerated ROTC with only one arm twisted behind my back.

Syd became another of so many known (and unknown) mentors. He shepherded me through the difficult task of transitioning from an SF soldier to an Army officer.

I got to know sweet Blanche and the rowdy boys. Syd even trusted me to throw his boys off the front of the Armory 'on rappel'. We always got together whenever I found myself back at Bragg. Sigh. His lessons remain with me to this day.

RIP, brother.

Prayers out, you will not be forgotten.

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat." - President Theodore Roosevelt, 1910
