That guy was one bad motherfucker, straight up...

I put on my uniform and snapped his warrior ass a salute. Wow.

I can imagine he would have been a great gentleman to have a scotch or two with. Men like these are what made our military second to none. I am glad I stumbled upon this memorial.
Now they want to dismantle our military and give the job to the assholes at the United Nations for Christ sake.

Hi! Great site! I'm trying to find an email address to contact you on to ask if you would please consider adding a link to my website. I'd really appreciate if you could email me back.

Thanks and have a great day!

Thanks for listing his awards as well. I just want to point out that CSM Plumley's time in the Army was before the 'medal inflation' that we have now and I would "WOW!" a soldier in today's army wearing that rack!

Men like this should be held up as heroes, not musicians, sports stars, and actors...let's recognize our real heroes!
