Just found out about General Starry's death. This officer was without question the greatest Armor officer in our generation. I had the priveledge of serving with him in Germany, Ft Knox and Vietnam. His memory will live with me forever. Rest in Peace, Sir. :!cry:

I am sadden to report that on Thursday night, Sept 2nd, my Vietnam battle buddy and good friend Garland K. Stewart lost his fight Cutaneous Lymphoma, an Agent Orange related cancer. The past month was really hard for Big G. I last spoke with Garland on Aug 23rd. He hadn't been feeling good, had received some bad news about his condition, and told me he didn't want visitors or phone calls. He called me on the 30th, but hung up before we could talk. Garland is survived by his wife and soul mate Cathy, a brother, and two nephews. It was Big G's request to be cremated and that his ashes be scattered off the shore of Tybee Island, GA. Blackhorse Troopers wishing to attend the memorial service need to arrive at Capt Mike's Dolphin Tours at 2:30 P.M. Saturday Sept 10th (turn right just after the bridge to the Island or left just before the bridge.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorial contributions be made to either:

Cutaneous Lymphoma Foundation
P O Box 374
Birmingham,MI 48012-9014

or

11th Armored Cavalry's Veterans of Vietnam and Cambodia ( 11ACVVC)

I share the saddened hearts of all Blackhorse troopers who served under General (then Colonel) Donn Starry in Vietnam. I was one of the fortunate who had that privilege. He was a courageous combat leader and set a wonderful example as a commander.

May the Lord grant him calm seas and a gentle wind at his back as he begins his eternal journey.

Rest in Peace, Sir, knowing that your life was an example to all with whom you came in contact. We will meet again at Fiddlers Green.
