I didn't always agree with his policies, but he always put country before party and nobody I know of gave more years of such varied service to this country.
Sorry, but I don't see the harm in dedicating a single thread as a memorial.

    No problem, he was a true public servant and statesman. RIP, Mr. President.

    We will not see this level of service and decent humanity in a big leader again - it feels like anyway

    Hopefully we will. Though at this time things are ultra partisan.

    A very good athlete as well. Got a hit in a MLB old-timers game of Milt Pappas. Played in the first ever CWS for Yale (were you there Yale Dawg? ) and captained the team. I loved his theme - CAVU - clear ahead, visibility unlimited.. Always aiming high. RIP

    Was not there but there is an athletic leadership award in his honor and a picture of HW with that team hanging in the student gym

    He was our youngest fighter pilot in WWII, a Director of The CIA, an ambassador to The UN, Veep and POTUS, just to hit the high points.

    Heard during a commentary this morning that he was captain of nearly every sports team he was on. A patriot, dedicated to serving others when he could have been serving himself.
