Colonel Swygert will be missed by all who have ever met him. I have been fortunate to have met him even late in life, and I enjoyed our conversations at the 26th Engineer reunions. Rest in Peace my friend.

Great leader. I only knew him short time in Vietnam but was impressed by his knowledge.

It saddens me to have lost such a dear friend. Col. Swygert joined our 26th Engineers Reunion Association and participated many years in the reunion. He was a speaker at our Banquet Dinners, but he was a great friend, advocate and special man. He and Betty were a part of the reunions. He will be missed and remembered.
