Message: We lost a great man today. COL OLA LEE MIZE died. He received the Medal of Honor for his actions in the Korean war. I met him while he was a Ranger student in 1957. At the time, he was a second lieutenant. I noted that there is a COL LEE MIZE in the RHOF but there is no Medal of Honor listed next to his name. (Surely this is the same person).If my memory serves me correctly, LT Mize stayed on after Ranger school so that he could be an advisor/actor in the movie Darby's Rangers. During that brief period, Lt Mize hung out with the enlisted instructors and befriended all he came in contact with. He was truly a soldiers soldier. RLTW

Message: 16 Rangers, past and present held the monthly meeting of the USMRA at the Overhang on March 6th. The meeting was called to order by Vice President Al Parten at 7:08 P.M. in the absence of President Hawk. The minutes of the February meeting was duly reported and accepted by those present . Also absent for the meeting was our spirtual leader, Willard Langdon. The meeting moved forward with the report of the treasure's report which was also accepted. General discussion followed on new business reguarding the scholarship. Ted Tillison presented a motion to increase the amount to $1,000.00 annually. After much heated discussion, the motion was tabled untill the next meeting. Old business continued the discussion of the Easter Egg hunt to be held on April 20th, 12 PM. The open house was discussed. Fish Fry and the Critter cookout recieved much attention. A whole hog is promised for the cook out , but more meat is needed. Ranger Bishop is our head Chef and will provide the hog and the fish. After discussion of stocking the creek with trout, J.D. reported on two very good donations for the cookouts. He will write a thank you for the USMRA. The meeting adjourned at 8:03. RLTW.

SFC Willard Brooke is recovering from a 4 wheeler incident this past weekend and is at Atlanta Medical Center.

5th RTB is keeping a 24/7 presence there as Ranger Brooke remains in a coma.

Willard attended quite a few USMRA meetings, usually bringing a buddy with him.

Our prayers and hopes for recovery are with him and his loved ones, especially his wife and young son.
