A fellow blogger and Vietnam fighter pilot, Ed Rasimus, has died.
Ed flew F-105's and F-4's in Vietnam, receiving several decorations for valor in action, and wrote extremely entertaining books about his experiences there. He blogged for several years at Thunder Tales, to the enjoyment of many. He was diagnosed with adenocarcinoma last year, and the disease spread very rapidly. He was admitted to a hospice recently, and passed away yesterday.
Godspeed, Sir. May your final flight be escorted by angels. We're diminished by your loss.
