Dead at 93, Robert Strange McNamara. Honest, that is his name. He got his middle name from his Mother's side of the family.
For those of us who served in the Armed Forces in the middle of the 1960s, and especially those of us who served in Southeast Asia, Mr McNamara, then Secretary of Defense, was not a well beloved character.&nsp; He was the focus of all our thoughts about what was wrong.
Mr McNamara has now gone on to his reward.♠
Secretaries of Defense are very important people and can adversely impact not only the development of the Armed Forces, but also our basic military strategy and also our national security strategy.
Regards — Cliff
