General Chavarrie impacted my life in so many ways. I began working for him as a captain when he was a Lieutenant General. He treated me so well that I would have done anything to serve him. I never forgot that lesson when I became a commander. He conducted my promotion ceremony to major and my Navy Captain dad who was a carrier pilot with disdain for Air Force pilots came away with this same great respect for General Chavarrie that I had. Years later I had the opportunity to reconnect with General Chavarrie after he was retired. He wanted me to call him Ed, but I could never do it. He was a giant of a man, a pure example of brilliance accompanied by kindness and compassion. I really loved and admired him. I will always be grateful to have had him in my life.
