Sgt. Maj. Angel Macias

RIP Brother, Vaya con Dios


Sgt. Maj. Angel Macias, a founding member of Delta Force, dead at 80
By David Roza January 19, 2021

A founding member of the Army’s elite Delta Force passed away in North Carolina on Jan. 5, local newspaper The Fayetteville Observer first reported.

Retired Sgt. Major Angel Macias, of Parkton, North Carolina, passed away at the age of 80 after a lifetime of military and civilian service, according to his obituary. Born in Torreón, Mexico, in 1940, Macias grew up in Robstown, Texas, before joining the U.S. Army when he was 19. He went on to earn many decorations and medals in the Vietnam War, including the Bronze Star.

Thank you for your service and sacrifice.

Prayers out.

You will not be forgotten.

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat." - President Theodore Roosevelt, 1910
