Condolence From: Patty Meredith
Condolence: Thinking of Linda on this sad day. Linda and I played AF and Armed Forces Volleyball together. She was a great teammate. A quiet leader who always made any team better. Even though we had lost touch with each other, I thought of her fondly. RIP Tag, you will be missed and the world is a better place from your many contributions.

Condolence From: Keith Crowell
Condolence: On behalf of the Home Builders Association of Western Michigan, the loss of Linda is a tremendous loss for all veterans. She inspired our group, young and old, with her heartwarming and loving telling of Honor Flight missions, and she provided the inspiration for a builder veterans night at the Air Zoo in October.

We will miss her.

Condolence From: Connie Reeves
Condolence: Dear Linda,
The world was a better place with you in it. You quietly, competently, and assuredly acquired positions of greater rank and responsibility. No fanfare. No self-promotion. I enjoyed bragging about you to male pilot friends as you continually surpassed their achievements. I'll never forget your stories of flying on 9/11, bringing VIPs back from the Midwest, and the eerie sensation of being practically alone in the airspace. Your retirement from the military was just like you...wearing combat fatigues, no huge pomp and circumstance, just a dignified ceremony and celebration. You made a great transition from military to civilian life, and made a difference everywhere you went. I hope you were having fun that last day. We already miss you. You have been taken too soon.
You were a stalwart of Women Military i

Condolence From: Peggy Phillips, Col, USAFR (ret)
Condolence: It was truly an honor to serve with Gen McTague. We met early on in our careers through Women Military Aviators. May your family find comfort in knowing she was well loved and a life well lived. Her legacy is a testimony to that life and the love of her family.

Condolence From: Kimberly K. Dougherty, Lt Col, USAF (Ret.)
Condolence: I first met Linda in the 1980s, as colleagues in Women Military Aviators, and was immediately impressed with her ability to make everyone she met feel valued. With quiet, confident leadership, she blazed a trail for women in aviation. I’m honored to have known her, and will join Col Hamilton in a toast! Blue skies and CAVU weather!

Condolence From: Barbara Garwood, USAF/USAFR Major (Sep), Captain American Airlines, Retired
Condolence: Linda and I were pilots and instructor pilots in the same squadron in 1985 at the USAFA. She flew the de Havilland twin Otter parachute jump plane, while I flew gliders. There were not many women officers at the time then. It was easy to became friends with Linda as she was genuinely kind and professional officer. She had a remarkable career, supported the Women Military Aviators and the journey of the evolving opening of jobs in the Air Force for female pilots. God Bless you Linda as you soar above us in your final flight. You will be remembered and missed.
