Connecting the Troopers of Today with the Veterans of Yesterday.
I was asked by an Old E. German about our Spot Lamps on the M-60. He wanted to know why the light was Pink and what kind of Lamp it was, Mercury or Sodium.
I don't know,
would that have been top Flores Mike?
Mike...that would be him. The one and only 1SG Eugenio Padilla-Flores!
Best top I ever served with.
He was all about the "tough love" for his soldiers. Hard when he needed to be but a fun guy when you stayed out of trouble. Always remember the same payday safety briefing..."one drink makes you a man, two drinks makes you a lion, and three drinks makes you a pig."
