I first met Col. Slone when he was a member of the Navy League of United States, Columbia Council, several years ago. He was one of the most engaging and dynamic men I have ever met. he was candid, statesman-like, and always conducted himself as the consummate USMC officer, which he was. He loved his family, the core, and this nation was always heart and soul. It was a privilege and honor to know him, even for such a short period of time.
Semper Fi, Col., we shall miss you.
