George Armstrong Custer III; Descendant of Famed General

George Armstrong Custer III, 67, who fought to retain his great-grand-uncle's name on a national park in Montana on the site of Custer's Last Stand on June 25, 1876.

Himself a decorated Army officer, Custer repeatedly objected to proposals to remove Custer's name from Custer Battlefield National Monument, where Sioux and Cheyenne Indians wiped out Lt. Col. George A. Custer and his 224 men.

The retired colonel, who lived in Pebble Beach, complained that Indian activism had also caused his family to be ignored at centennial observances of the battle.

Custer served in World War II, Korea and Vietnam, and earned eight air medals, the Silver Star and the Distinguished Flying Cross.

He died Saturday in Toledo of a heart attack.
