General George Wear retired from the US Army as a brigadier general after 30 years of distinguished service in three shooting war assignments. He spoke about his life and military service at the noon Rotary Meeting on Nov. 11. Wear lives in Glenwood, grew up in Western Colorado near Meeker, attended Mesa Junior College and graduated from the US Military Academy. He served in World War II, where he was wounded, in Korea and Vietnam. He also recounted his experiences with the nuclear issue during the Cold War. He is a past president of the rotary club, and he is, we are sure, one of the few veterans his age that can still get into his uniform.
