Col. William C. Toole 1932-2016

My heart is heavy in writing this post.  My Marine has gone to be with the Lord.  He suffered quite a bit the last two months so I am glad that part is over, but I'm missing him terribly.  On October 15, 2016 he succumbed to double pneumonia at the age of 83, just four days short of his 84th birthday.  This photo is with Cheney at the 2015 Devil Pup graduation at Camp Pendleton.  

Col. Toole brought the Devil Pup program to Southern Utah when we retired here.  The first shipment of pups to Camp Pendleton was summer of 2007.  This program was Col. Toole's passion.  He was so proud of each and every one of "his" pups.

Awards Night Practice

Devil Pups - practice at Southern Utah Veterans Home at 7:00 p.m. tomorrow night - Thursday, September 22.  Just a few minutes to go over the program.  

Please arrive a few minutes early on Friday night (doors open at 6:00, so Sgt. Lewis suggests 5:30) to set up tables and maybe run thru it one more time.  I will chat with Debra Clark Rozema and Les Covey about the layout of the tables to accommodate the Color Guard down the center, plus a "head table" for the Devil Pup, Inc. personnel which should be on the side closest to the door to accommodate Col. Toole coming in at 7:00 (possibly in a wheelchair).  There will need to be a catering set up plus a cake and ice cream table.  SUVH personnel will be available to assist if more tables/chairs are needed.
