Robert Conrad has passed .
I remember him first as James West, that ‘Special Agent” with all the cool gadgets, who always got the job done…
And later, as “Pappy” Boyington, that guy who took a bunch of Ner-Do Well pilots and forged them into a fighting force that, again, always got the job done. A Patriot who knew he (and his men) was expendable if it drove the Japs back and saved the lives of American Servicemen.
His legacy will live on in my memory.
That it will, and he was the personification of the short guy syndrome! 🙂
