CSM Taylor was a great example for us Soldiers under his Command. I had the privilege of having him as a boss at work for a few years also and he was great to work for. I received my first military coin from him when I was in AIT. He will be missed. SSG McDonald

You were the glue that held together the 35th ID HQ during a turbulent oranizational change. You ALWAYS put Soldiers first and made sure standards were held. It was a pleasure to have served with you and you will be sorely missed by everyone who were lucky to have known you. Prayers to your family. You will always be remembered for "Get 'Er Done"!
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Claudette and Family, Dennis was a man of great faith and character. I remember our first meeting that dates to 1995 when he was 1SG of G Company in Aurora and, Claudette, you served as "mama bear" over the unit's FRG. Little did I know how long lasting our friendship would become. Mary and I extend our deepest sympathies to you and your family. We pray for your comfort in the days ahead. Per Dennis' request, we've made a contribution in his name to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. May God's peace be with you. - Patrick and Mary Muenks
