My heartfelt sympathy goes out to Pete's family. He was a great guy and a great boss. I worked for Pete in the Officer Branch of the RIARNG even before I became a Warrant Officer. I learned much from Pete and admired him, as well as the knowledge he bestowed on me. He will be missed. Rest in peace, dear friend.
