44 years ago this month (April1, 1970), we lost Redcatcher 6, our commanding general to hostile fire. Sad day for,
especially for me, and all Redcatchers of the 199th Light Infantry Brigade. BG Bond was a soldiers general and whenever and
wherever we went he wanted to be with his warriors. May 19th, he will be inducted into the Officers Candidate School Hall
of Fame at Ft Benning, GA. I will be a guest and accept his induction on behalf of all Redcatchers.
