A sad day. CASS is a true American hero. I greatly enjoyed chatting via PM, emails, and one phone conversation.

RIP sir! Fair winds and following seas.

A surer ticket to Valhalla, there never was.

Ugh, saddening news to hear. Although my time on this board has been short, I came to admire the man behind the poster name "Cass". Always classy, knowledgeable, and precise. I am surprised that I was able to read advice and life lessons from a man of his caliber, and am very fortunate to have done so on this site, and am better for it. Thank you, Cass.

RIP, Sir. A life well lived and a true blue American hero indeed. I'll drink to you tonight, lest we forget your sacrifices.

Fair Winds and Following Seas, Cass.

Grateful Civilian 20 July 2016 18:52

Few men live the life Cass did; fewer still leave behind as rich a legacy. I'll miss the wisdom, history lessons and humor of his posts. My condolences to the SEAL community and his friends and family.

RIP Cass and thank you.

Hoepoe 20 July 2016 19:43

A great loss. RIP Cass, Sir.


Shadow 20 July 2016 20:00

Damn. 2016 ain't no joke. :frown: :mad:

Rest in peace, Warrior; thanks for your service, thanks for the words of wisdom, and thanks for the memories.

I asked Frog's permission and he said put them up...
I found these on

Unless I am mistaken, these are originals:

Jesus, what an American Hero there are very few men like Cass- Ken Garret.

The news came in email this morning from the association and made me sick to my stomach.
[U]From the UDT/SEAL Association:[/U]
Ken graduated with the very first organized UDT Training class formed in Coronado, in late 1950. This class was not formally issued a class number. Class 001 followed in 1951. Ken then served 3 combat tours with UDT-1 during the Korean Conflict.

RIP, sir and thank you.

Cams 20 July 2016 23:02

Cass and I have never spoken, I've followed his posts for years with great interest but I don't post a lot.

The obit Frog posted confirms everything I had thought about Cass, that he truly was a giant among men.

I will pray for him and his family.

Godspeed Sir. Thank you for all you've done.
