Brave men indeed. The right stuff all 'round. Such men seem to be missing in our post modern world.

Yeager was my hero too. He had a lot of influence on my choice of career.

I didn't know Yeager was still alive. So many of the Apollo astronauts, who I think of as the next generation of brave hearts, have already gone. 97, when I checked. That's a long and full life! Rest in peace.

Among his other achievements he was also a WWII fighter ace. In his p-51 he shot down five German planes in one encounter. A great man and a modest one.

Interesting interview of General Yeager toward the end of that short post.
