I served with Sumner in the 1st of the 102nd FA for along time. He was a great soldier and good friend to all who served with him or under him ! He was very good at making you laugh when times were miserable. He was a master at one liners at appropriate times. I met a lot of his friends at his shop or next door at the sandwich shop. I miss the “good times” we had along with Leo Higgins. Rest In Peace Izzy.
