Watching a movie on television the other night about the military and one serviceman said to another, “You don’t have to have a patch on your arm to have honor.” Although men like Gen. Krulak do have a pach, there are men like Harold Tubbs. He’s a man of honor who met another. Meetings like that change lives for the better.
BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - Harold Tubbs used to want to be in the Marines. And though he never became a Marine, he sure got the meet one.
“Yeah, I was in The Marine Corps for almost 37 years, ended up as Commandant Of The Marine Corps because of great people," said General Charles Krulak. “And then I ended up coming to Birmingham and becoming the President of Birmingham-Southern College.”
The circumstances which brought the two together are unlikely at best.
“I go to a basketball game on a Saturday at Cornerstone High School. I got in the car, drove home and I realized - jeez, there’s something missing. It was my wallet was missing,” Gen. Krulak said.
Added Tubbs: “I pulled up at a gas pump and saw a wallet by the trash and for some reason something made me pick it up. I looked inside and I saw a whole bunch of what I would call important things.”
Included in the wallet was Gen. Krulak’s military I.D. and a couple of other documents that he need if he goes to Washington.
“Me and him ended up talking on the phone and he was excited to get his wallet back. I was excited for him. He made me get excited to give it to him,” Tubbs said.
