Letter to Our Members

The Chapter has lost another beloved Life Member. CSM(R) Larry Reis passed away 24 April 2024 in Lenoir City, TN. Larry was a 3rd Grouper and USAJFKSWCS alumni prior to joining 5th Special Forces Group (Airborne) as the 3rd BN CSM. Larry bought into the 5th group ideology and became a lifetime member of The Special Forces Association Chapter 38. Larry’s unique characteristic was that of a very serious person with a heck of a sense of humor. If you didn’t know Larry he could be rough around the edges and you never knew if he was joking. Once you got to know him you realized the great comedian and king of one liners that he was and was still rough around the edges. He would be as quick with a joke or wise crack as he was with a reprimand and just as serious sounding with both. Larry was kind hearted and generous and was always looking out for his Soldiers. Larry will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him. A memorial ceremony will be held at Liberty Chapel on fort Campbell at 1100 on 9 May 2024.

RIP Larry we will catch ya on the high ground.
