On Thursday, Aug. 16, Nashville music industry veteran David Corlew was honored by U.S. military personnel at Fort Campbell, KY where he was named an Honorary Member of the 187th Airborne Infantry Regiment (also known as the “Rakkasans”).
“Being designated as an Honorary 187th Airborne ‘Rakkasan’ is an accolade I never expected, not in my lifetime. I am honored beyond words,” notes Corlew. “Serving those who serve, and have served, has become a life mission for me. The transition from military life, to civilian life, truly is and will continue to be a difficult journey. Some more than others. I plan to assist in that process as long as God gives me the strength to do so. It is the least I can do for those who signed up to protect us from the evil tyranny that faces our great nation.”
