The Finance corps has lost an Airborne Finance Sergeant Major who has,
time after time, underscored the value of the Finance corps as a
Combat multiplier. His execution of the corps’ mission was always
characterized with continuous improvement that eliminated problems and
increased the quality of Finance support to soldiers around the globe.
The culmination of his achievements was recognized at Fort Lewis when
during his 29th year of service the post CSM recommended and DA
approved an extension of service to 33 years.


Jim Martens:

Glenna and I are very sorry to hear about the passing of Bill. He was a great guy and was a very important leader of RAFINCO. A positive force in the merger of our organization's into today's RAFINO. He will be greatly missed. He and his family are in our prayers.

Bill Tolbert was one of my early mentors when I transitioned from the Infantry to Finance almost 50 years ago. He was always there for me. I am proud to have served with him in the 82nd Airborne Division and will always cherish our friendship. All The Way, Sergeant Major!
