My heartfelt condolences Victoria for your loss. I’ll forever cherish our brief meeting at the taxi in Paris near the Eiffel Tower. I was privileged to be able to shake General Yeager’s hand and thank him for all he’d done for our country. An incredible life lived indeed!

My husband and I so revered the General, ma’am.
One of the thrills of our lives was being at Indy when HE drove the Pace Car – the 4th turn was as close as we could get to our hero, but we waved back, tell you what.
God bless him, you all, and thank the stars above for such MEN.

If anyone was the first to “slip the surly bonds of Earth…and touch the face of God”, it’s General Yeager. RIP sir. Flag of United States
