Sorry Frank for calling you "Ken." I was multi-tasking while doing this post and became confused. :-)

Larry, Sorry to hear of the Sec's passing. I remember well the ski trip you, me and Ken Clima had with the Sec at Crested Butte in 72-73.

Those of you assigned to HQ CIDC PSD in the early 1970ís probably remember Secretary of the Army Howard "Bo" Callaway Sr., the former Georgia congressman. He passed away yesterday at age 86. Callaway died at an assisted-living facility in Columbus from complications from a brain hemorrhage he suffered about two years ago.

In 1973, he was appointed Secretary of the Army.

From 1970 until 2003, he was the principal owner and CEO of Crested Butte Mountain Resort in Colorado. In 1980, he unsuccessfully ran for the U.S. Senate in Colorado and he was chairman of the state Republican Party there from 1981 until 1987.

He attended the Georgia Institute of Technology before leaving to become a cadet at the United States Military Academy at West Point. He graduated in 1949 with a military engineering degree.

During his military career, Callaway served as a Lieutenant. He was a platoon leader in Korea and a tactics instructor at Fort Benning. Callaway ended his military service in 1953 to return home and help his father develop and manage Callaway Gardens, a 6,500 acre garden and resort in Pine Mountain,Georgia.
