CSM Basil Plumley - veteran of 3 wars and eternal BAMF - dies at 92

LINK

quote:

It is with sadness that I bring you this news: at 0400 this morning, Command Sergeant Major Basil Plumley, veteran of three wars, and one of the biggest bad asses that ever lived, passed away. For the unenlightened or unknowing, CSM Plumley survived all four combat jumps with the 82nd Airborne (Sicily, Salerno, Normandy and, Holland) as well as one more combat jump with the 187th regimental combat team in Korea. This is all before he became the Sergeant Major for 1st squadron 7th Cavalry, and helicoptered into LZ X-ray armed with nothing but a .45.

He was played in the Mel Gibson movie by this guy:

Holy shite. What an incredible story. I wish I could meet courage like that. He was probably as humble as they come, too. True badassery looks and acts nothing like the fake shite we see too much of today.
