  • RIP CSM Basil Plumely

    Command Sergeant Major Basil Plumely has passed today. He was a veteran of WWII,Korea and Vietnam. He was most known for the battle Ia Drang in November 1965.

    Rest in peace Sergeant Major. You were a lion amongst men.

    Perhaps my memory is shoddy, but I do recall reading that CSM Plumley, during the late 1940's-1950's, was billeted to counter-intelligence, and due to his unassuming physique and youthful appearance, was assigned to play the role of a university student, to keep an eye on subversive activities on campus. In the process, he earned a couple of degrees, including a doctorate of philosophy. By the time that the 11th Air Assault Brigade was formed, he was considered the most educated NCO in the Army. Am I remembering that correctly?

    RIP CSM Plumley. The angels had better stand at perfect attention when you get there.

                In their hymn the US Marines claim that they guard heavensí streets. Well they better have their act together when Sergeant Major Plumely marches though the gates.

                  The long toll of the brave
                  Is not lost in darkness
                  Over the fruitful earth
                  And athwart the seas
                  Hath passed the light of noble deeds
                  Unquenchable forever.
