My father passed away peacefully this morning. He died at the age of 89 after a full life as an infantry officer, diplomat, and trusted financial advisor. He retains the distinction of being the youngest member of the General Staff in U.S. Army history. His death was not unexpected; it was a peaceful transition. Rest in peace.
