Be Thou at Peace

I must regretfully post the passing of another SFA XXXI member, Richard 'Rick' Rose who passed away 03 March 2015. In Vietnam Rick was a member of IV Corps Mike Force from 1968-1969.

He was a recipient of the Bronze Star Medal for VALOR. In addition to his SF qualifiaction and US parachute badge he was also awarded the CIB and Vietnamese parachute badge. Other decorations included the NDSM, VCM and VSM.


I must regretfully post the passing of long-time member and former SFA XXXI Chapter President Harvey E. Cox Jr. who passed away peacefully this morning (11 February 2015) at home with his family after a long courageous battle with cancer.
Harvey was a stalwart member of SFA XXXI supporting the Chapter in many ways. He always provided embroidered shirts and hats, trophies and plaques excepting no payment or credit. It was his way.

He served in the Army from 1958 to 1963 with 10th SFG(A) stationed in Berlin, Germany.

He will be sorely missed but never forgotten.
