Colonel Lloyd Wyatt was my superior officer for seven of my 20 years of military service (1976-1983), an extra-ordinary term as Army assignments go, yet he served much longer in his position developing the Department of Defense Postal program, a major logistics system. I believe that this tenacious tenure was a sign of his trust in me and there is no more significant force in my career than his. I believe that we did great things together, certainly allowing me to be all I could be. I regret that our lives took totally divergent turns after I retired in February 1983, but, still, I thought of him often as a mentor few ever have. At this late date, I still offer my condolences to his wife Madeleine and family.
