RIP Stormin' Norman
It is with great regret to hear of the untimely passing of one of America most recognizable military commanders, US general Norman Schwarzkopf (Stormin' Norman)

I remember an interview he did after retirement that speaks to the fleeting nature of fame and power.
He said that one day he commanded hundreds of thousands of men who would blindly do his bidding and a week later he couldn't get a plumber to go to his house
One great soldier,general and human being
The one thing you can say about Gen.Norman Schwartzkopf that he was a great leader of men right up there with the like of Grant,Sherman,Lee,Eisenhower,Bradley just to name a few.I hope Osprey publishing decides to honor this hero in its Command series of books.I also feel it would be fitting that a future carrier in the Ford-class should be named for him.
