16th Annual Ranger Hall of Fame (2008)
CSM George D. Conrad

I haven't seen George in more than 15 years.  I know this.  The US Army lost one of it's finest soldiers and Command Sergeant Majors when George retired.  He was a true professional.  He did not have a single political bone in his body, he truly cared about soldiers. -  Donald Patrick
