I was having one of the worst days in a long time and I got a call from an old friend that made my night. Thank you Tommy you’re one of the best dudes ever.
My heart is heavy today thinking about my mentor and friend SSG Richard Tyree. You taught me so much about being a soldier and a leader. Your guidance and leadership continues to influence me today. I still tell people about us playing spades with the Air Force and playing slingshot in the clinic in Balad. I’ll never forget you. Rest easy brother, you sand baggin’ son of a bitch.
