Sgt Spivey was my shop chief at Dyess AFB. I was a SrA and got to watch him sew on his last rank of MSgt; he was so excited. I remember talking to him at a golfing function where we both volunteered as DDs. Very easy to talk to. I still think of you, Sir, and hope you and your family have found peace. RIP
