1934-2012, We will miss you General! I had the pleasure of serving under General Schwarzkopf twice during my career. Once in the 24th Inf Div where he was Div Commander (Grenada & Panama actions) and the other in Saudi Arabia, Iraq, and Kuwait Desert Storm and Shield). I remember briefing him on the readiness for war status of my company. He was a GREAT General and didn't beat around the issues nor except nonsense. He didn't allow anyone else under him do that either. If it was broke FIX IT and do it in a hurry. He would come back to check too! It was either good or bad there was NO excuses for NOT doing what you should do. Years later at the Baharan Airport in Saudi Arabia we met again in the concourse....he noticed me standing on the side of the hall way and came up to me with his entourage, shook my hand, and said it was good to see me again. I don't think he actually remembered me personally but he said that...I think it was the patch that I wore once again of the 24th that he noticed. He was certainly loved in the 24th INF Div (mech). GODSPEED GENERAL!
