Chuck Yeager

General and American icon Chuck Yeager has passed away aged 97. He's probably best known for being the man who broke the sound barrier. Something that was immortalized in the movie The Right Stuff.  

As great as that was I'm guessing he was probably more proud of this accomplishment.

But for me this was an example of why Yeager was so great. Yeager had the right stuff but he didn't hold it against those who did not.

Chuck Yeager was an American original. We will not see his like again.
