AFL Deputy Chief Of Staff Laid To Rest
By Ballah M. Kollie

MONROVIA, August 26 (LINA) –The Government of Liberia has described the late Deputy Chief of Staff of the Armed Forces of Liberia (AFL), Col. Eric Wamu Dennis, whose remains were laid to rest Friday ‘as a patriot, an administrator and a career soldier.’

Dennis, who was commissioned by President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf on February 11, 2014 as the first Liberian Deputy Chief of Staff of the new AFL, was also decorated by government as a ‘disciplinarian, devout Christian and a dedicated public servant.’

The Government of Liberia recalled in its official gazette that Col. Dennis was one of a batch of 106 soldiers who graduated on November 4, 2006 and who pioneered the AFL restructuring program after 20 years of devoted military service to his nation Liberia.

As a devout Christian, Col Dennis was a committed member of the organists and hymnists of the Good Shepherd Episcopal Church in Paynesville.

His years of dedicated service as a soldier saw him rise through the ranks to become a Colonel.

The late Deputy Chief of Staff was a graduate of the University of Liberia, Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration, and a graduate of the Barclay Training Center under DynCorp.

He also served as Chairman of the Reserved Officer Training Corps (ROTC) Department at the University of Liberia.

Delivering the funeral discourse, Episcopal Bishop Jonathan B.B. Hart described Col. Dennis as a soldier who lived a life of service and sacrifices to God and his nation.

He then prayed that God will receive him to the final resting place promised every Christian.

Bishop Hart added: “Brother Dennis has done his best in the race, he has run the full distance and has kept the faith and it is time for him to rest.”

The funeral service took place at the Sacred Heart Cathedral on Broad Street, while his remains were interred in Bensonville in Lower Montserrado County.
