One of our USMF family (and EG&A moderator), Gary Mohrlang, sadly passed away Sunday from a heart attack (apparently less than a day after his last posts here on Feb 16).
I worked closely with Gary (aka GLM) on the EG&A reference here. Not to mention I came to him with a good many questions. Always good natured and fun, Gary provided more than I even expected - plus he often included a little of his own personal whit with it. Of course, Gary had a vast knowledge of many other militaria subjects besides just EG&A's (take a look at any one of his 1, 169 posts).
Below is the email his son sent to the ADMIN email account with a message for all:
My name is Jeff Mohrlang; I'm Gary's son. Sadly, Dad just passed away early
Sunday morning from a heart attack.
I just wanted to tell you all how much he appreciated being a member of the
forum. On his behalf I want to say thank you for being his friends and
I know I speak for all of us when I say that we thank Gary for his friendship and dedication to the collecting community.
He is definitely someone this family of USMF members will greatly miss.
Rest in peace, Gary.
