Dan Smith (1943 – 2010) In Memoriam

August 13, 2010

I regret to inform you that our friend and colleague Dan Smith succumbed to heart failure Monday, August 9, 2010.

Dan came to FCNL from The Center for Defense Information in 2002 to be our first Senior Fellow on Military Affairs.  Dan was a graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point.  He completed a distinguished military career — one that began with the U.S. war in Vietnam and concluded with the first U.S. Gulf War in Iraq — at the rank of colonel.  Defense intelligence was his specialty. Dan would have been 67 on August 15th. …

To read more and to leave a condolence message please go to Dan’s blog, “The Quakers’ Colonel.”

Thank you. — JV
