I am sad to hear of his passing. Though I've never had the honor to have met him, I could tell by the reverant tone of others that he was very much loved and respected here. He responded kindly to my post when I had my heart attack and I felt special because I know I am a nobody compared to others on this site. Rest in peace Sir and Aloha oe.

I always read his posts closely because he always had something of value to say. We are diminished with his absence.

RIP Cass

I was lucky enough to exchange PM's with him on things completely unrelated to national security/military affairs. I will always treasure the stories and insight that he left us with on this site.

RIP Cass, you will not be forgotten.

I can't believe I didn't see this until now.

RIP, Sir.

It sounds like he had a life worthy of an HBO miniseries. And yet, you'd never hear that from him. I thank God for guys like him.

Holy Smokes! I am saddened, though absolutely honored to have known him outside of this forum.
Rest well dear friend and warrior. Thank you for enriching my life with your friendship.

Our world was better for having him in it.
He had Been There, Done That before many of our member's parents were born.
As far as SOF goes, he was one of the founding fathers.

I just returned from out of state with no access to internet. What a shock. Speechless at this time. A true American hero, and we are all better off for having been touched by him in some way or other.
Very apropos his passing was on July 4th.
Fair winds and following seas, shipmate.

The second thought that came to mind after sadness. How fitting that he share the day of other great Americans, Thomas Jefferson and John Adams.

You will be well remembered Cass and greatly missed. A truly great American.

Was in the process of completing a move and didn't catch this until now. Always enjoyed Cass's writings.

See you on the other side, Sailor!
