True American hero

General H. Norman Schwarzkopf:

genA true American hero!

He loved his family; he loved his country and was not ashamed to show it.

One of the last of the “Good Guys” died at the age of 78.

If the current leaders of our country were half of the man that the general was, the United States would be a lot better, safer, more respected and honorable place to live.

People like General Schwarzkopf only come around once in a life time.
