This past Saturday morning, many mourned the death of Alexander Haig, a former four-star general. He was also considered to be a top official for three U.S. presidents. Haig was responsible for managing the Nixon administration and served as secretary of state under President Reagan. His death occurred Saturday morning at John Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland. He had been staying there under their care since January 28. Many people came out and issued statements saying, “he served his country well…He carried himself well. He carried himself with dignity and honor.” Haig according to many was well respected by those around him and demonstrated traits and qualities that every young boy and girl should aspire to have. In his younger years, he attended the University of Notre Dame as well as the U.S. Military Academy. He was born December 2, 1924 in Pennsylvania in a suburb right outside of Philadelphia. John Bolton, former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, was the individual who announced Haig’s death to Washington on Saturday. He noted Haig as being a “patriot.”
