As PAO officer it is my sad duty to report the passing of Lt. General William Fitch, USMC.
Our Corps has lost one of its most renowned aviators who was a true leader and patriot. A man who selflessly served his country in war and peace. Please join me in prayers for and condolences to the family. The General was my former Commanding General when I served with the 1st MAW in Japan and I had the distinct honor of spending time with the General last year before his illness over took him.
Funeral services are scheduled for 1300 hours 4 February 2016 at MCB Quantico, Virginia
Semper Fidelis-Memory Eternal
