RIP General Norman Swartzkopf


Recommended Posts

Stormin' Norman has gone to his last reward.


IMO, he was a fine military man and he served his country with honor. He was an excellent Leader, Strategist and Tactician. He was a no-nonsense, no B.S. guy.


I recall one incident during the war, General Swartzkopf was narrating what the reporters were seeing on the screen in front of them. There was a bridge with a car going across. The pilot deploys a weapon and the explosion happens right behind the car as it speeds off the bridge. Gen. Swartzkopf commented "Now there's one lucky sonofabitch".


Hand Salute!

If you play cool, you are cool.

Even a dove like me can appreciate Swatzkopf's service and dedication. He became somewhat of a celebrity during "Desert Storm", and was refreshingly human after years of Westmoreland's stiff and cold persona during Viet Nam.


Rest in Peace, soldier.


I started out with NOTHING...and I still have most of it left!
