Taps for Chief Hammett
I was saddened yesterday to read a press release from the Pentagon announcing the death of Chief Warrant Officer Robert Hammett, who was killed in action on Tuesday in Sadr City along with Maj. Dwayne Kelley of the 432nd Civil Affairs Battalion.
I knew Chief Hammett and served with him in Baqubah, Iraq, during my tour in 2005-06. He was the air defense chief for the 3rd Brigade, 4th Infantry Division, at FOB Warhorse. I spent several nights inside the brigade's command center or out at the helipad talking with him while waiting for helicopters. He was a superbly brilliant officer who had a gift for relating to people. We will all miss him greatly, and keep his family in our thoughts and prayers.
