Welcome to the Official Chuck Yeager Web Log!

As you might have already guessed, this blog is the place to post comments, anecdotes, reflections, or anything else that might invite a discussion centered on the life and/or career of Brig. Gen. Charles E. "Chuck" Yeager.

So why a Chuck Yeager blog? Besides my knee-jerk response of "Why not?" it is my hope that anyone having an interest in the General or his accomplishments will benefit from this interactive exchange of information. Have a question, thought or comment? Post it here. I guarantee this is one subject I never get tired of talking -- or reading -- about.

As a professional writer and former journalist who has spent the past two decades immersed in anything that did, does or will have something to do with General Chuck Yeager, it is my pleasure to bring you this official forum.
