To Whom it may concern

Rudi Gresham was dedicated to serving my father, LTG William P. Yarborough, USA (Ret.) as an aide and a friend until his death.  Rudi helped Gen. Westmoreland in his conflict with the news media and then provided invaluable assistance to my father on media issues and other issues related to Special Forces over many years.  Rudi helped save my father’s life when he had a burst aneurysm by coordinating with the Cleveland Clinic.  He lived, for years after the successful operation at Cleveland.  Later Rudi helped plan and coordinate the funerals for both of my parents at Arlington National Cemetery.  The way Rudi has always protected the US, the US Army, Special Forces interests, and all veterans, has made him a brother to me.
