Another great Soldier and Fallen Hero have been released from duty, passed from our ranks on February 5, 2021 and moved on to his heavenly home. Colonel (COL)(Ret) Glenn Anderson Taylor, age 67, a retired member of the MS Air National Guard who had served within 172d Aircraft Maintenance Squadron, 172d Air Wing, and later serving within the Headquarters, MS Air National Guard has departed and gone to a better place with our good Lord.
It takes a special person to serve within the military for their country giving up their family time, comfort, and safety for their country, ultimately for all Americans to enjoy their freedoms, safety, and way of life. We now applaud you for your service to our country. A special message from General Douglas McArthur remains applicable today for our servicemen that have passed: “Old Soldiers never die; they just fade away”.
Rest in Peace Airman. We applaud your patriotism and brave efforts in serving our country and your family for their support of your service. We thank you for your service. Without your efforts and your families’ support, this country would not stand so boldly, shine so bright and live so free.
You now have earned a rest, so go fly with the Angels, go rest high on that mountain; your work on earth is done. Go to heaven a-shoutin’ your Love for the Father and the Son.
