Honoring a Fallen Hero, Who Served Within the Mississippi National Guard
In recognition of our proud American tradition of honorable service which our military men and women have given to their country and our State, we honor a Fallen Hero. Our nation, our state, and the National Guard Association of MS (NGAMS) regard the memorializing of its retired military deceased as an honorable and sacred obligation.
Another great Soldier and Fallen Hero has been released from duty, passed from our ranks on November 1, 2021, and moved on to his heavenly home. SSG(Ret) Randy Greene, age 58, a retired member of the MS Army National Guard who had served within the 106th Support Battalion and worked full-time as the Shelby CSMS , has departed and gone to a better place with our good Lord.
It takes a special person to serve within the military for their country, giving up their family time, comfort, and safety for their country, ultimately for all Americans to enjoy their freedoms, safety, and way of life. We now applaud you for your service to our country. A special message from General Douglas McArthur remains applicable today for our servicemen that have passed: “Old Soldiers never die; they just fade away”.
Rest in Peace Soldier. We applaud your patriotism and brave efforts in serving our country and your family for their support of your service. We thank you for your service. Without your efforts and your families’ support, this country would not stand so boldly, shine so bright and live so free.
You now have earned a rest, so go fly with the Angels, go rest high on that mountain; your work on earth is done. Go to heaven a-shoutin’ Love for the Father and the Son.
Funeral services for Mr. Randy Allan Greene will be conducted Friday afternoon, November 5, 2021, at 2 PM from the Saulters Moore Funeral Home Chapel.

Mr. Greene, age 58, entered into eternal rest late Sunday evening, October 31, 2021, at his home in Carson.
