Rev. Dr. Roy D. Pope, Jr. Commissioned as Hon. Colonel in Alabama State Militia by Gov. Bentley
I'm as honored as any Alabamian can be right now. On 17 April, 2015 I received a commission from Gov. Robert Bentley, State of Alabama as an Honorary Colonel in the Militia of the State of Alabama. (Image below)
This is the highest honor that the Governor of Alabama is able to bestow upon a resident of the State of Alabama. It reads...
