Gone Two Years Today - MCPO Schwartz
My Command Master Chief, CTMCM (SW) Ronald N. Schwartz passed away two years ago today (27 August 2007). I had the privilege of promoting him to Master Chief Petty Officer while I was Commanding Officer of U.S. Naval Security Group Activity Yokosuka, Japan and presiding over his retirement ceremony while I was Director of Training at the Center for Naval Cryptology - Corry Station in Pensacola, Florida. He was a remarkable Chief Petty Officer. He is remembered and greatly missed by the many Shipmates (including me) that he trained over the years.
