TAPS – Emmett L. “Jesse” Dover

Jesse passed away on 6 April 2019.  Jesse served in Detachment”A” from 1973-1978.

Jesse’s love of his life Annmarie stated:

Jesse requested cremation without any fanfare. I will pick up  the  ashes and wherever I go, he will go with me.

He wants everyone to remember him the way he was, he suffered enough.

He was the love of my life and death will not separate us.

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.
