I am very sorry to hear of the passing of LTC Myers. During the early 1960's LTC Myers (then Major Myers) was my Detachment Commander while I was on temporary assignment with the Helmstadt Support Detachment as an MP working at Checkpoint Alpha (Berlin Brigade). LTC Myers was a great commander and he took care of his troops and he kept us straight. LTC Myers was a a gentleman who was fair and well respected by his troops.
Rest in Peace Sir!
