Remembering An American Warrior – CPT Larry Dring (USA, Ret)

When I was a kid, I read about Larry Dring’s Army exploits and they definitely influenced my own service. For example, I influenced my career in some unconventional ways and was often in hot water over being in the wrong uniform.

Unfortunately, he passed away even before I joined the Army myself, but I often went back and read the accounts written by SF Veteran Jim Morris and published in Soldier of Fortune magazine and now found in the book, “The Guerrilla Trilogy”. To me, Larry Dring was a hero.

Today is the anniversary of his death and I thought I’d introduce this legend to my readers.

Awhile ago, I ran across a great memorial website, complete with scans of the SOF articles, and found out that Larry’s son also served in the Army. They put a lot of work into it, so be sure to go check it out.
