Another One Gone
I received word yesterday that my first boss in the military died. He was 92 years old. His name was Frank Carraher and was one of the first Chief Master Sergeants (E-9) in the Air National Guard. He was in the Marines in WW II as an E-7 and served under "Chesty" Puller in the Battle of Peleliu, one of the bloodiest in the war. A true veteran and gentleman in every sense of the word. I stayed in touch with him all these years and will miss him greatly.
We're losing more of these guys every day.
Born on date May 31, 1988. This car did one lap of Indy in May 2006 for opening day ceremonies. Member St. Louis Corvette Club. NCM Member Number 518453.
An American Hero......Rest in Peace.

All vets deserve our thanks but of CMS Carraher fought with Chesty in WW2...now there was a f'ing MARINE!
Thanks for serving, Frank, and rest in peace.
