I always read his posts closely because he always had something of value to say. We are diminished with his absence.

RIP Cass

I was lucky enough to exchange PM's with him on things completely unrelated to national security/military affairs. I will always treasure the stories and insight that he left us with on this site.

RIP Cass, you will not be forgotten.

RIP Sir. I always looked forward to his thoughts and observations.

Terminator2 24 July 2016 01:45

I can't believe I didn't see this until now.

RIP, Sir.

It sounds like he had a life worthy of an HBO miniseries. And yet, you'd never hear that from him. I thank God for guys like him.

Maas 24 July 2016 10:12

I paid attention to everything he posted. He was a national treasure.

Rest in peace Sir.

RIP Cass. You are a legend and my hero.

We only spoke a few times on the phone the first time didn't go so well, but the rest were good. Always read your post and learned something, you will be missed but never forgotten.

bullet65 24 July 2016 14:55

another of "the greatest generation" gone. I read his post with interest.

Holy Smokes! I am saddened, though absolutely honored to have known him outside of this forum.
Rest well dear friend and warrior. Thank you for enriching my life with your friendship.

RIP Cass.

Our world was better for having him in it.
He had Been There, Done That before many of our member's parents were born.
As far as SOF goes, he was one of the founding fathers.

Mr.Smith 25 July 2016 03:09

Wow. I totally missed this news. Sad to hear. Rest easy, sir.

I just returned from out of state with no access to internet. What a shock. Speechless at this time. A true American hero, and we are all better off for having been touched by him in some way or other.
Very apropos his passing was on July 4th.
Fair winds and following seas, shipmate.

The second thought that came to mind after sadness. How fitting that he share the day of other great Americans, Thomas Jefferson and John Adams.

You will be well remembered Cass and greatly missed. A truly great American.

This is truly sad news. Cass was more than generous to me with his time and I will forever be grateful. Rest easy Mr. Garrett.

All together, that's demolition"

What a great legacy.

Bangle99 25 July 2016 14:55

I enjoyed reading his commentary. Rest In Peace.

pavegnr 25 July 2016 21:48

A great loss. I always valued his word. Rest In Peace.

WS-G 26 July 2016 14:57

Was in the process of completing a move and didn't catch this until now. Always enjoyed Cass's writings.

See you on the other side, Sailor!
