STATEMENT BY GENERAL JOHN M. SHALIKASHVILI, CHAIRMAN OF THE JOINT CHIEFS OF STAFF

I am personally saddened to learn of the death today of a great soldier and leader, Lieutenant General Cal Waller.

Cal Waller was a friend for many years. His distinguished Army career encompassed two wars but, most especially, we remember him with great admiration for his magnificent performance as the Deputy Commander of DESERT STORM. He loved the Army. His legacy is one of leadership, professionalism, and a genuine love for the men and women in uniform -- his commitment was always to them. Our military is better today because he was a part of it.

On behalf of the Armed Forces, I extend deepest sympathy to his wife, Marion, and to the Waller family.
