MG Carl H. McNair Jr. RIP

MG Carl H. McNair Jr.
RIP Warrior, Vaya con Dios 🙁

I was very privileged to have known Carl for the last 7 yrs. We shared whisky(s) and reminisced about our times with the 1st Cav in Viet Nam. Carl and his wife had a unit in my condo

As a young officer, Carl was one of the early chopper pilots in the 1st Cav. I believe 65-66 and another trip 68-69? Carl had over 6000 hrs of flight time, with 1578 in combat.

MG McNair had a long and distinguished career of 32 years with the U.S. Army with his finest accomplishments serving as the first Branch Chief of Army Aviation.

MG McNair's awards include the Distinguished Service Medal [2], Legion of Merit [3], Distinguished Flying Cross [4], Bronze Star [2] with “V” device, 51 Air Medals, the French Order of National Merit, and the Order of Merit from Korea.

May you rest in peace knowing that you will never be forgotten.

RIP, Sir.

Thank you for your service, and your sacrifice.

"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
