I proudly served in the Army with Gil. For many of us who served with him; we just got word of his passing today, through social media. Though I hadn't seen or heard from Gil since our days at Ft. Sill, Oklahoma, I've recounted many of the laughs we shared in the years since. Gil was and always will be a friend, a hero and a brother to those who knew him. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family. Rest easy, Gil. We love you, brother! Charlie Rock!
