GySgt. Larry Wisnoski, USMC (Ret), R.I.P.

It is with great sadness that I announce the passing of Gunnery Sergeant Larry Wisnoski, USMC (Ret.).  "Gunny Ski," as he was known by all who attended the Marine Military Academy over the last 25 years, was a career Marine, a devoted father, and a loving husband.  He also was an excellent teacher of young men.  He didn't just tell us how to be leaders, but showed us every day in the way he lived his life, the way he worked with the other staff, and the way he treated us—firmly but fairly.  My life is richer having known him.  The school just won't seem quite the same without his smiling face.
