Post Man Named
Colonel's Orderly
For 28th Time

   Cpl Edward P. Boudreaux of Houma, La. and Fort Bunning's 508th Airborne Regimental combat Team, last week was selected as his colonel's orderly for his 28th time.
   This is the highest record yet achieved by any man in the unit.
  As orderly, Cpl Boudreaux's duties were to attend and carry orders for his regimental commander, Col. George O. Pearson.
   According to the young airborne corporal, "it takes more than a sharp-looking soldier to receive the honor," which is bestowed on an outstanding 508th trooper during each guard formation.
   "He must be in touch with the outside world constantly, up to date on current world events and have an excellent knowledge of the military chain of command and echelons of government," Cpl Boudreaux declared.
