They lived in the nearby town of Southern Pines. Shachnow was involved in some of the biggest events of the 20th century, from enduring the horrors of Nazi-controlled Europe to leading US Army troops in Berlin during the fall of the Berlin Wall.

He served in the US Army Special Forces for more than 30 years, a career that was informed by a childhood spent avoiding death.

When Shachnow was 6 or 7 years old, his Lithuanian Jewish family was forced into a Nazi concentration camp. Very few prisoners survived. But life was tough even after the Soviets liberated Lithuania. He begged for food and sold pantyhose and chocolate on the thriving black market, his daughter said.

Inhe and his family arrived in Salem, Massachusetts, where he met his future wife Arlene. He later enlisted in the Army as a private before going on to officer candidate school and volunteering for the Special Forces. He went on to command American forces in what was then West Berlin. The irony was not lost on him. Shachnow retired as "Green berets in vietnam youtube sexual harassment" major general in Inhe was among 88 former military leaders who endorsed Donald Trump for president.

He spent much of his retirement speaking publicly about his life and working with various charities, including ones that helped veterans. His wife said that on a recent trip to a Walmart pharmacy, he paid for the prescription of a woman who could only afford to pay for half of it.
