  • RIP S/Sgt Philip Fulks

    Phil was not a member of the Bench but he was one of mine.

    He had Three Air Medals and a Purple Heart. Those of us close to him used to kid him about where he got hit during a 122mm rocket attack on DaNang. He got bracketed by a pair of rockets as he was hauling ass to the nearest bunker. Caught a piece of shrapnel in the ass.

    I was in the hotel room with Poacher and crew Saturday night when I received a text from another one of my people that I was not even aware he had my phone number. It was a simple text --- SSgt Fulks has died.

    I knew he was in bad shape. Even had to have assistance in walking. I have no idea cause of death at this time.

    Rest in Peace Philip because you served your time in hell.

    My sincere condolences Mortis.
    I will raise a beer to SSGT Philip Fulks tonight.

    At the going down of the sun,
    and in the morning,
    We will remember them.

            The Good, they are gone too soon from us.
