You old space race watchers from way back will remember Bennie Schriever.
General Schriever passed away Monday at the age of 94.
He was the home-town boy from here in San Antonio who was one of the ramrods
in the early ballistic missile program. Under his command, the Thor, Atlas,
Titan programs (among others) were perfected. These missiles became the
basis for many of the important space boosters still in use today.
Here's a link to his obituary in today's San Antonio paper. No annoying
required to view it.
