    Gen. Paul X. Kelley

    Didn't see a thing about this Marine passing away yesterday, Dec. 29th, in the news.

    So I'll put him up here so he isn't missed.

    Gen. Paul X. Kelley, the 28th commandant of the U.S. Marine Corps, died Sunday at age 91, according to current Commandant Gen. David H. Berger

    "We should honor Gen Kelley’s lifetime of service to the Corps and to the nation," Berger said on Twitter Monday afternoon. "From his service in Vietnam, to leading our Corps through the Beirut bombing aftermath, Gen Kelley served with honor and distinction."

    Kelley, a Boston native and 1950 graduate of Villanova University, served as commandant from 1983 to 1987. capping a 37-year career in the military
