Never served with CSM Parks. I do know he was from 1st BCT before coming to 3rd BCT and 1P. He is currently the 3rd BCT CSM but is retiring and a new BCT CSM is in place. CSM Watts was the best CSM in the BDE and if he was alive I would have went to the Panthers without hestitation. He and CSM Flowers are the best of the best.
