TAPS – Major General Sidney Shachnow

It is with deep regret that I inform you of the passing of Major General Sidney Shachnow.

As you all know he was the commander of Detachment”A” from 1972-1974.

He was an icon in Special Forces, he was a highly decorated warrior and a superb leader.

His list of achievements were numerous during his long and accomplished career.

He was a friend and he will be missed greatly.
