    It saddens me to learn of the passing of CSM Dudley Thomas Jr. Surely, each of us remembers a mentor or soldier who played a pivotal role in our development, someone who encouraged our interest in soldiering, or influenced the direction of our spiritual and military career. This Sergeant Major of Color has been such a leader. He embodied all the virtues and long held memories we keep in our hearts for those leaders who always made time for the eager minds of soldiers. It is incredibly difficult to attempt to capture the impact of a person's life in a few paragraphs, especially when that person lived the kind of life. However, God saw him getting tired and a cure was not to be so He put His arms around you and whispered come to me. On April 25, 2021, God called him home and said it’s not far, just close by – Jesus is the Door. You remind us, Lord, through Solomon that to everything there is a season. We thank You for the earthly life You gave to this sergeant major and for the blessing during the sojourn here on the earth. We most especially thank You for the new life You granted this sergeant major in Jesus Christ. He broke the bonds of death by His resurrection. We rejoice at the hope of being reunited with him in the resurrection of all flesh. The NCO Corps thanks him for his selfless service act and his willingness to defend of America and all that we hold sacred.
