To those of you visiting the Official Chuck Yeager Blog for the first time, welcome! To those who are returning, you'll notice some changes. Either way, be sure you check in often. It is my intention, now that time permits, to post regularly. This is the best place in cyberspace to discuss and get info on General Chuck Yeager.
The General celebrated his 83rd birthday on February 13 by attending the 24th annual March Cal-Ore Fish Derby (http://www.cal-orefish.org/sections/derbies). An account of the expedition will appear in the April issue of the Chuck Yeager E-Mail Update. If you're not yet a subscriber, visit http://www.chuckyeager.com and click the "newsletter" link to sign up for this one-of-a-kind monthly publication.
A special link on his website that allowed visitors to send birthday greetings was available in the weeks leading up to General Yeager's birthday. By the time February 13 rolled around, more than 1,000 people from 19 countires had sent happy birthday wishes to the General!
His personal note of thanks can be viewed by logging on to the website.
