Former Army Corps of Engineers chief Temple dies at 67

Retired Maj. Gen. Merdith Wyndham Bolling “Bo” Temple, a consummate team leader during a career with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers that saw him rise to become acting chief of engineers, has died. He was 67.

“Do the right thing, for the right reasons, in the right way,” Temple often said. There are heroes, and then there are heroes who also enable others to be heroic. Temple was the latter, and under his watch many teams carried out monumental acts of heroism both acknowledged and unacknowledged.
