Today, at Arlington National Cemetery, we lay to rest COL(R) Robert L. Howard.[...]

COL(R) Howard was arguably America's most highly decorated Warrior ever, earning more awards for valor (10) than Audie Murphy, but he was surely America’s most highly living warrior until his death. The US Army Special Forces Command (Airborne) Biographical Sketch.

America's Best

Robert Howard was one of the finest warriors this country ever produced.

He was my commander during Phase I of Special Forces selection.
