George Washington Bacon III: MACV-SOG Operator, CIA Para-Military Officer, Mercenary, and Eccentric


Jun 2, 2022
George was my best friend at Oceaneering International, and we went through commercial dive school together in Long Beach, CA. Robert K. Brown came by one day and asked to see GWB in private. I sent them down in a hyperbaric chamber so they could discuss things without being interrupted. Next thing I knew, George said he was going to New Orleans, that he had a job perspective in Morgan City. He called a week later, saying he was bored waiting to go out on a rig job and was going crazy. The next time I saw him was in SOF magazine, listed as the only KIA in Angola.
