It is with great sadness that Denise and I learned of MG(R) John Landry’s passing this morning. John served a long and distinguished career in armored cavalry with an exemplary combat record in Vietnam. He was our superb VII Corps Chief of Staff, handling and coordinating the relentless details of putting together a 146,000 Soldier Corps, then the planning and execution details of our 89 hour 250 km attack from the Corps Main CP.
He and wife Margie were faithful attendees at our VII Corps DSVA Reunions and Memorial Services. We shall all miss him, and on behalf of our VII Corps DSVA Board and Association; Denise and I extend our deepest sympathies to his wife, Margie, and Sons Scott and Sean and their Families.
GEN Fred Franks
