No one close to him knows exactly how Sgt. 1st Class Wilton “Pappy” White was removed from the Ranger Hall of Fame, which honors the best of the elite U.S. Army Rangers.

There was, however, enough question about his mysterious removal nearly 20 years ago that the work of fellow Rangers and others in the intervening years got White reinstated to the Hall of Fame earlier this month, in ceremonies at Fort Benning, Georgia.

Sadly, White — who lived out his retirement years in DeFuniak Springs, and died in 2003 — wasn’t around to see his name restored to the Ranger Hall of Fame. Instead, his widow, Floried White — now 90 years old and a fierce advocate for her husband’s reinstatement — accepted the honor on his behalf.
