In the post about Craig McNamara’s book Because our Fathers Lied: A Memoir of Truth and Family from Vietnam to Today, I neglected to mention Robert McNamara’s daughter, Marge, named after her mother. I never met her, but I did know her husband Robert Pastor, who had a distinguished career in foreign policy. They had two children. He was nominated by President Clinton to be Ambassador to Panama, but that appointment was blocked by Sen. Jesse Helms. As his father-in-law became frail in old age, he would tell me how Bob Pastor and Marge were an important part of his life. Pastor died of cancer in 2014.
I now know that Platform has readers and there is a way to update with a correction and an apology.
