Here is some interesting information that was in a letter I was pleased to receive from the Randall Shop. It is about Col. Compton and his relationship with the Randall family. Who could have guessed that Mr. Bo Randall was so close to Col. Compton when the historical discussion about LTG Moore began. What an interesting connection, and it adds valuable context to the portion of the story about COL Compton and his WWII Randall. Mr. Gary Randall wrote:

"...COL Compton was a wonderful friend of my Dad and both Dad and I camped and fished with him after WWII. He really was like a great uncle to me?"

I've forwarded the letter to LTC Steve Moore and his family. I'm sure they will enjoy knowing the personal connections between Col. Compton and the Randall family.
