Master Sergeant Jyri Laats (US Army Retired) passed away quietly in Palm Springs, California recently at the age of 95. A true warrior has entered Manala (Estonian for the great thereafter). Laats was born in independent Estonia in 1923 in Põlva, one of two brothers. His mother fled Estonia in  1944 and reached the west; she died in Australia. His brother fell in combat against the Communists.
