A War Veteran Who Had a Way with Words
Although war heroes are not usually very approachable, Chuck Yeager proved to be the exception to the rule. Sadly, the decorated Air Force veteran passed away Monday at the age of 97. Interestingly, Yeager proved to be a formidable presence on the social media platform Twitter recently. Answering questions from fans and posting about his experiences as a World War II pilot, Yeager was remarkably humble and down-to-earth for someone who had been famous for the better part of seven decades. But it was not his World War II service for which he was most famous. His crowning achievement would come a bit later.
