Stafford, Va. Command Sgt. Maj. Cornell W. Gilmore had achieved stature as sergeant major of the JAG Corps and chief adviser to the judge advocate general for enlisted issues, but friends said his real passion was working with ordinary soldiers."He cared desperately about taking care of soldiers, not only soldiers in the JAG Corps, but the ability of JAG to take care of all military members," said Jack Nevin, a judge and Army Reserve colonel who had worked with Gilmore."He died doing what he liked doing best, which was going out in field and meeting with our young soldiers."Gilmore, 45, was killed Nov. 7, 2003, when the Black Hawk helicopter he was riding was shot down near Tikrit, Iraq. He was assigned to the Pentagon and lived in Stafford, Va., with his wife, Donna Gilmore. Their two children attend college."He was a dynamic leader, an inspirational leader," Nevin said.Gilmore served in the JAG Corps, which provides judges and lawyers for the Army's military courts, throughout his 22-year career. He was also a minister of music at Shiloh Christian Church in Stafford.
