Default Rememering Chuck

I am posting this to remember a good man. Chuck played for Bear Bryant.
was offered a try out with the cowboys. Chuck's words Tom Landry told him you S##K
He was drafted and Joined Seal Team 2. Four tours in Nam. there he received three Purple Harts and a Silver Star.
He was a avid card collector. a personal friend of Hank Arron. just one of many professional ball players I had the pleasure of meeting through him.
This may be wrong to post this if so . I am sorry. but days like this make me
understand that especially this time of year. nothing matters more than friends and family. ROLE TIDE

Godspeed, Chuck.

Indeed, nothing matters more than friends and family.

Default remembering a real man

i posted this to for a friend and a fellow card collector . that lived a life that most of us couldn't accomplish in several life times?. i am not trying to exaggerate what this man contributed for our country. he was a navy seal and in a way provided you the opportunity for us to live the life we live today. but his love for sports that he lived . he accomplished though card collecting. he actually had the opportunity to play the game. Tom Landry told him i cant keep you on my team, how many collectors out there can say i tried out for a man like that. i would love to have a Cobb or Ruth auto. i wouldn't trade Chucks auto for both.

Seems like a great guy, overall. Wish I could have met him in person.
