Memorable People - Friends and Acquaintances of Charles B. Moore
|General Hap Gay||Back To Menu|
General Gay was the Superintendent of New Mexico Military Institute and I was a member of the Corps of Cadets, one of 600 cadets.
My father and I visited with General Gay several times so later when I announced my candidacy for the Texas House of Representatives, General Gay, who by that time had retired in El Paso, called me and graciously offered to send a personal letter of endorsement to all NMMI alumni in my district.
I still cherish that letter and the kind words written by this tremendous man.
General Gay was General George Patton's Chief of Staff and was in the automobile accident that caused General Patton's death.
