General Volney Warner, another retired distinguished Army General has endorsed the petition for Audie.
General Warner is a distinguished graduate of West Point, Class of 1950 and a veteran of Korea and Vietnam, and recipient of two awards of the Silver Star.
In addition he has a son who is a retired Brigadier General.
On a sad note, his granddaughter following in the footsteps of her father and grandfather graduated West Point in 2003 and was commissioned a 2 Lieutenant.
In 2005 she became the first woman graduate of West Point since women were first admitted in 1980 to be KIA in combat, after having hit a roadside bomb in Afghanistan.

Here is the bio of General Warner:

Here is an obituary of his grandaughter:

Thanks,


Dave

This was truly a tragic and sad story. The General is a fine man and I really appreciated his endorsement.
