All I know is I’m going to miss him. I remember him coming to my house when I lived in Doswell to play with his new build. Seems like yesterday. Between Dale, Don, and Paul I have so many memories. I miss them all. From the protests, to Breakfast to dinners I felt like they were part of my family.

thats a Bullseye, Brother...,

Brothers and Sisters in the cause of Liberty, we have indeed lost a great warrior. I have had the privilege of meeting and getting to know Dale over the last eight years or so as I found my way in to activism. I could not have asked for a better guide or example on how to proceed. The amount of wisdom and experience he brought to our cause cannot be overstated. Dale walked the walk. He applied his shoulder to the wheel and pushed with considerable strength despite his small stature. Along with his activity here in OCDO, he was a vigorous activist within the Virginia Citizens' Defense League (VCDL). If there was a cause of the day, an open carry dinner, an injustice discovered, a meeting, or Lobby Day, Dale was not only there, he was out front and center in a leadership position. When some of the other greats were lost in the last few years such as "Peter Nap" and "Skidmark", Dale was immediately organizing efforts to assist family and friends. I am blessed to have known him. You never doubted his dedication to the cause and the people in it. The weight you feel in his loss is the weight of his burden that now becomes ours. Shoulder that load. While the greats may fall the cause remains: Freedom! I have lost a mentor, I hope I can emulate his character and try to live up his standards of activism.
SKOL!
YATA HE!
+1000, couldn't have said it any better!

Well said, The Wolfhound.

It is with a profound sense of reverence we honor our fallen heroes.

See you on the other side, Dale.

Job well done good servant

I never met Dale in person, he wasn’t able to make the one Saturday breakfast I made it in Richmond (thanks for tour Scouser & late Skidmark); but we did have some good discussions about OC, strategies to interest gun carry w wife & daughter, as well as early American history and our predecessors role in it. Prayers to you and your family Doubletap, Dale made a difference in my life and I will miss him.
