Frank Collins Rauch

West Point, 1961

Be Thou At Peace

Posted by Francis Monaco on January 12, 2022:

COL Frank Rauch was our Airborne Artillery Battalion Commander in the 70s in the 82nd Airborne Division Artillery (1st Bn, 320th Airborne Field Artillery, 82nd Airborne Division, Fort Bragg, NC). He was an exceptional leader, mentor, and even better man, concerned for his troopers and their families. Surviving a near fatal injury during a training exercise, he nevertheless led his soldiers in a truly exceptional manner. A dedicated family man and volunteer, he served our country extremely well throughout his career and retirement. May he Rest In Peace; sincere condolences to his great family.
