From Major David T. Cloft
Bad news. I sadly learned yesterday that SGM Michael Carlin, a very close and personal friend of mine passed away. SGM Carlin was TDY to North Carolina this weekend and suffered a severe heart attack while enroute to home station. SGM Carlin was a previous member of the USAR Service Rifle Team and a current member of the USAR Service Pistol Team.
He was a Distinguished Pistol Shot. SGM Carlin was also the new SGM for the USARC G7 located at Ft. McPherson, GA. I think it would be fitting to place a note in the upcoming CMP First Shot publication of his passing if you think it’s appropriate. On a sad note this is the second current USAR Shooting Team member we’ve lost in the past six months.
