Gen. Alexander Haig
Gen. Alexander Haig discusses the strength of the Warsaw Pact at a Defence Planning Committee meeting in 1976.

Today, our Army Family has lost a great Soldier and Statesman who selflessly devoted his life's work to the service of our Nation.

General Alexander Haig's service spanned over three decades in the Army. He served in the Korean and Vietnam wars, and-for his gallantry-received numerous decorations of valor, including the Distinguished Service Cross. Later, General Haig served as our Vice Chief of Staff-a position from which he helped lead the effort to transition our force to an "all volunteer" one.

We honor General Haig for his most distinguished service, and will always remember him as the Soldier who-when the Nation called-never failed to answer. Our thoughts and prayers are with Pat and her family.
