"Brigadier General Tallman was a veteran of WWII, Korean, and two previous tours in Vietnam prior to his untimely death when he was killed in action in Binh Long, RVN. I fondly remember General Tallman's concerned patient mentorship for me and many other soldiers who served with him over the years. It is with deep gratitude we are remembering you and all the others who served and died in times of war so that we may enjoy the Freedom and Liberties that make the United States of America great."
