Col. Chuck Older AVG/23rd FG Ace-RIP

Hello guys

Indeed Mr Older was the trial judge at the infamous Mason trial. Vincent Bugliosi mentions him in his book on the trial, including that on one occasion Mason attempted to physically attack him during proceedings after which he is said to have begun carrying a gun beneath his robe. Not a bad idea. Condolences to his family.

Leo
