Columbus Hospice of Alabama

Retired Command Sgt. Maj. Frank C. Plass is a hero.  Fort Benning dedicated a building in his honor, Plass Hall.   His awards include a Bronze Star Medal, Air Medal, 19th recipient of the Doughboy Award in 1997.  He was also one of 264 recipients awarded the Combat Infantryman Badge with two stars for combat in three separate wars.

The We Honor Veterans program at Columbus Hospice presented Command Sergeant Major Plass with a certificate and pin recognizing his numerous contributions to our country.  1-29 Infantry Regiment consisting of Commanders and 1st Sergeants also attended the ceremony. They shared what an honor it was to be in his presence and stories about his time in the military are legendary at Fort Benning.  Command Sgt. Major Plass and his wife of 65 years sat next to each other.

Columbus Hospice has honored over 150+ of our nation’s men and women.  We continue to find each experience unique and meaningful.  And WE are honored to participate in these special moments in our patients’ lives.
