    A true Soldier. Pretty much out of the limelight and non-political. Much decorated. Called William Westmorland a "horse's Ass". Tactical genius. RIP !

    God bless him.

    I was one of his troops in Desert Storm. Very much admired him.

    When planning for Desert Storm he told the people under him to make a plan, “But No Meat Grinder”. True Hero!
