To the family of General Shali - please accept my families heartfelt sympathy. General Shali has left a legacy of selfless service to our Nation.
I first met the Shalis' the day they moved into family quarters at Patrick Henry Village, Heidelberg, Germany in the 1989-90 timeframe. He and I sat on the edge of the curb chatting while the engineer staff was getting the hosue ready and the household goods were being delivered on an early Saturday morning. Just chatting. What I did not realize was that I was just chatting with a 3-star, DCINC!! As the Housing Manager at Fort Myer, Virginia, I again had the pleasure of renewing our relationship with General and Mrs. Shali while they were living in Quarters 6, Fort Myer, and he was serving as our Chairman, Joint Chief of Staff. It was indeed an honor and privilege to serve them both. God Bless.
