I was a squad leader under Warren in the Army Reserve in the late 60’s. I always considered Warren and First Sgt Tom Black 2 very positive influences in my life.

I have many memories of Warren. As a mentor, he helped me to become the person that I am.. He nicknamed me MeatHead, a character in All In The Family. He always called me that.. I can recall when several Letter Carriers and our wives would go out dancing. Warren and Billie were right there with us. There was never a generation gap. Good times. We hunted together a few times and he never let me forget who was in charge. I learned a lot from him and I will miss him. God Bless You Warren..Tell Billie MeatHead said Hey.
