What’s missing from that article is that Brother Rat Colonel Wayne Jones ’89 held that same billet a couple years ago!
While it’s not rare to have a VMI grad in command of a Marine Regiment– indeed, it’s preferable!– having two members of the same class command the same regiment is rare, if not singular.
General Sam S. Walker would be proud… NOT! Ha ha ha.
(And thanks to Brother Rats NAC’89 and DRM’89 who sent in the word.)
