Honoring a Fallen Hero, Who Served Within the Mississippi National Guard.  “Fallen, Yet Not Forgotten”

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 Jul 8, 2023.   SSG Charles Delbert McBeth (Ret), age 71 , who had served as a member of the MS Army National Guard  within Co. A, 1/155th Infantry (Tylertown )has departed and gone to a better place with our good Lord.  Charles worked as a fulltime  armorer contractor at Camp Shelby during their Iraqi-Freedom activation.

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, our 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.

Another great Soldier has gone home, “Fallen, Yet Not Forgotten, Soldier for Life”.

Obituary, Visitation, and Service details:

Charles Delbert McBeth, age 71, passed away on July 8, 2023 at the Collins State Veterans Home in Collins, Mississippi. Delbert was born on June 15, 1952, in Bogalusa, Louisiana, son of J.W. McBeth, who preceded him in death, and Mary McBeth.

McBeth served in the Army National Guard and for the last 13 years was contracted at Camp Shelby through the Department of Defense Contractor as a training equipment armorer that takes a special skill. It was especially valuable when our local national guard was called in to service, and was remarked upon by his superiors by how gifted he was at it.  

He leaves behind his wife Donna Bowman McBeth of 43 years, three sons, John and his wife Angel, Josh, and Jeb and his wife Emily, and three grandchildren Kyler, Andrew and Sutton, who is on the way.

Delbert was a graduate of Tylertown High School, Class of 1970. He was a great sports enthusiast and athlete. He enjoyed playing with the travel softball team Alive and Kicking that stayed together for about thirty years and won a number of championships. His team nickname was Snoopy and was an outstanding outfielder. Delbert was devoted to his family and loved being with them was very important. He loved playing baseball and spending time with them and assisting at sports was valuable to him. He loved time spent with his grandkids and having fun with them was one of his great joys. At home, he loved watching westerns, football, baseball, and enjoyed being a jokester with friends and family.
