Peter Cooke is a breath of fresh air in Utah's political life. His energy
and breadth of experience from around the world and right here in Utah is a gift
I hope Utahns will recognize and support.
Enjoyed reading this article about one of the most inspirational commanders in
30 years of wearing Army green. Then COL Cooke, commander of the 5th BDE, 91st
Division (EX) was inspirational in my recovery from my first neck surgery and my
application to become an Army Chaplain. Working in his S-1 shop and as his
Webmaster, I got to see him up close. He is everything the article touts him to
be - and then some. On this Independence Day, I thank him for his distinguished
service to our nation and his fine example to all his troops over the years.
Powder River, sir!
