Sorry to learn of the passing of Mr Childress. Sympathy and prayers are with the family as you grieve the loss of a wonderful person. I had a great working relationship with him at the Ordnance Center and School, Aberdeen Proving Ground, MD prior to my retirement in 1993. He will surely be missed.

Joan, Kathy, Beth and family, I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Col Childress. He was my Commanding Officer in the 2076th USAR School. I remember what a kind soft spoken kindred man he was. He was the best CO we ever had. I remember his retirement ceremony at the Wilmington USAR Center. His accomplishments are very remarkable. May the Lord give you grace and comfort your hearts.
