Army says oldest 4-star general has died at 98
Thursday - 11/24/2011, 2:49pm EST
FORT SAM HOUSTON, Texas (AP) - An Army spokesman says a four-star general has died of natural causes in San Antonio at age 98.
Spokesman Don Manuszewski says retired Gen. Ralph E. Haines Jr. died Wednesday at San Antonio Military Medical Center. Manuszewski says Haines had been the oldest living four-star general.
Haines was vice chief of staff of the Army from 1967 to 1968. He also served as commanding general of the 1st Armored Division and the III Corps at Fort Hood.
A 1935 graduate of the U.S. Military Academy, Haines served 37 years in the Army.
Haines was a strong advocate for moving the U.S. Army South's headquarters from Fort Buchanan, Puerto Rico, to Fort Sam Houston in 2002. He's also credited with starting a training program for noncommissioned officers in the 1960s.
