Thank you so much for your leadership and mentoring me as a young Lieutenant. We, the LT’s, looked up and respected you as a strong NCO. At times your comments were harsh, but reality, and your intent was to ensure every solder, even those above you were trained and held to the highest standard. I also enjoyed the casual times we spent Talking and learning about your job as a teacher. I would never have guessed that was your occupation. I was like, “wow, SSG Krause has a nice side.” I am honored to have served with you and amazed by your continued development in the military attaining the rank of Sergeant Major. Cold Steel! 🇺🇸
