Not sure what to say?

Mr. McCarty,
Sir, I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for our Country when you served in the U.S. Army Air Forces during WW II and for being a member of the Greatest Generation. And to your family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

Coach McCarty allowed me to become a Miner PA announcer...he also hired the legendary track coach, Wayne Vandenberg. He was small in stature but large in ability...he turned UTEP into an athletic power. may he rest in peace.

Coach McCarty was a towering figure in Borderland sports history. He displayed uncommon courage in playing African-American players in the Old South. And he had the wisdom to hire Don Haskins. His legacy is secure.
