Chris, Karen, Lottie Rose and Arlo Miller Tucker:
Chief Tucker, (William J. Tucker) I always called Chief, Chief or Mr. Tucker although people called him Bill. We talked about this one day, but to me he was Chief and still today on this heart breaking day he is Chief.
Chief Tucker, was my Boss, Mentor, and Friend. From my Boss, in the United States Army to a true friend for almost 20 years, Chief I will never forget you. While writing this I thought of so many things about Chief I could say. What stands out the most to me was Chief Tuckers love for his family, friends and the United States Army for which he served over 30 years. How could I forgot this, Chief would probably get mad at me for not mentioning Chief's pride in being "Airborne".
Thanks Chief, I will never forget you. You, your family will be in my thoughts and prayers. Chief this is for you,"GO AIRBORNE".
