The man had a long a extremely distinguished life.

I didn't know he died.

I checked all the major Puget Sound papers, KOMO TV news, CNN, FNC, BBC, google...even the Peninsula Daily News (he lived in Port Angeles, WA)...not a word.   :hmm

FMJ, you know the man's relatives or something?

And I did not know he was the prosecutor at Sirhan Sirhan's trial.

No, I don't know the man.  Someone on Calguns made a post.  Let me link it here.

That should do it I think.

I will confess I had never heard of him until today, but I saw his picture and I understood right away.

At least he can join Major Dick Winters and all of the rest of his fellow soldiers in heaven.  We will take good care of their rifles for them down here on earth.

I got to see him speak in person at the Museum of Flight last year.  He was energetic and cheerful.

Godspeed.
