    I've been following his Facebook and all the great pictures he's posted over this last year, I'll sure miss him. I wish him Godspeed.

    I read his bio and thought he sounded extraordinary, good to see such a fine man take over for BG Linnington.

    Colonel McKearn, the Brigade Tactical Officer, has assumed the position of Acting Commadant today until BG Rapp finishes his current duties.

    Today is also COL McKearn's 50th Birthday. I went to his house with my company at 5AM today, set up posters, and played rock music from outside until he came out. He broke through one of the posters we placed on his door and walked under the saber bridge we placed for him. His wife wouldn't stop offering us food. It was a good time.

    My cadet told me that he was always out with the New cadets during beast-doing the rucks, making the runs, etc. I wish him well in his new assignment, which unfortunately looks to be a political hot potato.

    My 4/c says one of the things that most impressed him and ultimately swayed him to choose WP was during Summer Seminar when the Commandant would be a "regular" at morning PT. Great example of leading "from the front"....also a very effective recruiting tool!

    BG Linnigton also went to USMAPS this summer to work with the CC's. My son was fortunate enough to shake his hand and have his picture taken with him, made his summer go along just a little easier with that confidence. :thumb:
