Command Sgt. Maj. Gregory Peck

I am a big fan of Gregory Peck. Not the actor, but the Soldier. The Vietnam vet, Command Sgt. Maj. Gregory Peck:

Command Sgt. Maj. Gregory Peck

The last Vietnam veteran serving in the Tennessee Army National Guard has donned his uniform for the last time.

Born and raised in Oliver Springs, Command Sgt. Maj. Gregory Peck joined the Army at age 17. After more than 40 years of service, he is retiring.

Sgt. Maj. Peck enlisted in 1970 serving as a combat engineer in Vietnam with the 20th Engineer Brigade. For the next 42 years he worked his way up the ranks. Now he retires with the highest rank possible for an enlisted man.

Now that is service to country. Hand Salute for the link: Coffeypot (Thanks!)
