Daniel M. Carr III, 76, one of VVA’s early leaders, died July 17 of cancer at his home in Bend, Oregon. He was a founding member of Chapter 116 in Leominster, Mass., and served as a delegate to VVA’s founding Convention in 1983. A member of the VVA National POW/MIA Committee for many years, Dan Carr returned to Vietnam in 1994 with the committee’s Veterans Initiative program.
“Dan was a relentless advocate for Vietnam veterans and their families,” said Richard Earley, the president of Chapter 116. “He spent decades walking point on the issue of POWs and MIAs. His intensity, resolve, and compassion will be missed.”
He “was a good and loyal brother,” said Tim Brown, who served with Carr on the POW/MIA Committee, “and a devoted Marine to his fellow veterans and their families.”
