You may remember that LTC Roy L. Tisdale was killed by one of his soldiers in Fort Bragg earlier this year. Frosty CWO sends us word that his commander has named their new maintence facility for him yesterday and his family was there to cut the ribbon. There’s nothing in the media about it yet, so I’ll quote from the chief’s email;
As you may remember, LTC Roy L. Tisdale (’92 Texas A & M) was killed on 28 June by a another Soldier under his command of the Brigade Special Troops Battalion, 525th Battlefield Surveillance Brigade. Yesterday COL Xavier T. Brunson, Commander of the 525th, officiated a ceremony dedicating the Lightning Brigade’s brand new Tactical Equipment Maintenance Facility in LTC Tisdale’s honor. LTC Tisdale’s family attended and cut the red ribbon on the doors to the facility.
The attached picture is a plaque that was unveiled and will hand by
the door of the facility. As a first-hand observer, I can tell you that this is the nicest motor pool/maintenance facility I have ever seen or even heard of in my 17 years of service. I am assuming the Ft Bragg PAO will have a detailed story to link to soon, but I hope that you can post a reminder to your readers at TAH about how we are attempting to honor this great Leader, Soldier, Father and Husband that was taken from us too soon.
