    Retired Col. Ralph Puckett Jr. was honored Nov. 23 at the National Infantry Museum as he, his wife Jeannie, and Jack and JoRhee Pezold, whose contributions made the display possible, unveiled a new exhibit in the Ranger Hall of Honor illustrating Puckett's military career and life achievements.

    "No one that I can think of serves as a better example for our Infantrymen, and our future Infantryman to come and see this exhibit, be inspired by this exhibit and to be influenced and shaped by Col. Puckett's heroism and rare professional qualities," said retired Gen. Jay Hendrix, keynote speaker for the dedication.

We found out about the Pine Mountain trails from a friend at the on-post dog park, and decided to give it a try.
