The Last Brazilian Field Marshal Dies in Brazil at Age 108

first_imgBy Dialogo May 15, 2009 RIO DE JANEIRO, May 14, 2009 (AFP) – Press releases have reported that the last Brazilian Field Marshal died Wednesday at the age of 108 in a hospital in Rio de Janeiro due to health complications. Waldemar Levy Cardoso was the last living marshal – the highest Army rank – in the country after the position was abolished in 1967, only to be assigned to generals in case of war, and will be buried with highest military honors after his wake in Palacio de Caxias in Rio. Cardoso, who was admitted to the Central Hospital of the Army, was appointed to office in 1966 and participated in different Brazilian historical events, including the 1930 revolution that led to the presidency of Getulio Vargas, who served two terms (1930-1945 and 1951-1954). During the last military government (1964-1985), Cardoso was President of the National Oil Council, and during seven months of 1969 led the powerful state oil company known as Petrobras.last_img read more
