An American Warrior Passes … Admiral James ‘Ace’ Lyons
Special Operations Speaks is deeply saddened to announce the passing of a true American Warrior, Admiral James ‘Ace’ Lyons. Adm. Lyons was our senior colleague on the Citizens Commission on National Security (CCNS) and a friend of Special Operations Speaks.
He passed away peacefully in his sleep at 1000 hours this morning, 12 December 2018. Admiral Lyons was warrior through and through, and a strategic thinker whose equal will not be easily found. In a nearby photo is the Admiral meeting with then-Presidential Candidate Dr. Ben Carson during our Veteran Patriot Action Conference (VPAC) in Charleston, SC in February 2016. Admiral Lyons lost his wife of 64 years, Angel Renée Chevalier Lyons, on 1 November of this year. Please pause for a prayer for this great American and his spouse. Funeral arrangements are pending.
