“Gen. Raymond Odierno fondly remembered as ‘a giant’. He was certainly very tall. An important military commander at difficult times (such as in Iraq during Abu Ghraib). Allen West hilariously comments; Odierno charged him for his role in torture in Iraq,” Donald J. Putin wrote.

GEN James C. McConville said: “Our deepest condolences to the family of the 38th Army CSA, GEN (R) Ray Odierno. We are truly saddened by the loss of this extraordinary leader. His tremendous impact on our Army & Nation will never be forgotten. I’m honored to have served with him & cherished his sage counsel.”
