Prattville Dragoons New Color Sergeant Chadwick Roten
Chadwick Roten who only recently joined the Prattville Dragoons, SCV Camp 1524 has volunteered to step up as Color Sergeant for the camp. Chad should be congratulated and thanked for stepping forward to help the camp in a leadership position. Former Dragoons Commander and current Alabama Division Chief of Staff Larry Spears has been acting in the capacity of Color Sergeant and will relinquish this responsibility in a ceremony at the upcoming Dragoons spring picnic at Confederate Memorial Park. Chad heeded the call of Gen. Robert E. Lee which Communications Officer Tyrone Crowley reiterated in the most recent issue of the Prattville Dragoons Camp Dispatch monthly newsletter, "Duty is the sublimest word in our English language. Do your duty in all things. You cannot do more. You should never wish to do less." And that of Lt. Gen. Stephen Dill Lee in the SCV Charge,
