While that may be true, Mortali and Swart happen to have just celebrated their 50th Reunion from Notre Dame and both, among many other Notre Dame graduates I am sure, love Notre Dame and their country equally and the timing seemed right to showcase the Class of 1952 and their dedication to both.
Mortali and fellow classmate Sam Swart dedicated their life to the United States.
Swart retired from the US Air Force as a Major General in September of 1989 after 31 years of service.
In addition, at least six others spent time serving their country.There is no doubt we missed someone in the research process and we apologize in advance for anyone we fail to mention.
Swart added, "Attending Notre Dame was one of the finest and most important phases of my life.My time at Notre Dame allowed me to develop those traits that enabled me to be relatively successful during my military career.
Swart, who vividly remembers Brother Eldred, moving into the new building and graduation and was a member of the glee club, debate and varsity golf team while a student at Notre Dame, attended the University of Virginia following Graduation for one year before entering the U.S. Naval Academy and graduating from there in 1958.He was later commissioned into the US Air Force and spent the next 31 years serving his country.
"My decision to join and make a career of the military, resulted, in a large measure, from a desire to serve which I first began to realize while a young boy during WWII," said Swart.
Swart flew 198 total combat missions, including 100 over North Vietnam.All totaled, he was a command pilot with more than 6,000 flying hours, including 400 hours of combat flying.
He was promoted to major general on July 1, 1985 and served in that position until his retirement.
Both Mortali and Swart sent a message for recent graduates or those thinking of attending Notre Dame.Yet, it certainly can be applied to all of us in our daily lives.
Swart said, "Try to develop an unbreakable sense of personal responsibility, which always holds you responsible for the consequences of your actions.When you are confronted with a situation that demands you choose a course of action, always choose the one that is right – no matter how difficult.Never opt for the easy way out!"
