I have great respect for MG Henry Cobb. Formation of 20th Special Fores with Presidents Eisenhower and Kennedy and Gov Patterson, when the few Special Forces units were all active duty. was quite an accomplishment. The 20th group, headquartered in Birmingham, with battalions in five states required significant negotiations with five state legislatures, military branches, budgets and other political forces. Henry was a successful businessman, entrepreneur and friend. I will miss having supper with him on the second Tuesday of each month at Golden Rule. he usually sat just to my left.
