During Desert Storm I was working the port and Class V operations at al Jubayl when General Schwarzkopf came to visit. I have never seen such appreciation and admiration for a commander. And of all the officers I have known, none was as much admired as General Schwarzkopf. His place in history, and in our hearts, is assured.
Storming Norman, we really need you for our country, now !!!!!!!!!!!!
I was a soldier during the Gulf War in the "Sand Box" supporting the 2ACR as a communication specialist team Leader. I never felt more confident when I knew the Bear was in charge I could feel eminent victory which embolden me to be the best at what I did. Thanks Gen. Schwarzkopp. Now I am more confident of the following words: He will render judgment among the nations and set matters straight respecting many peoples. They will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning shears. Nation will not lift up sword against nation, nor will they learn war anymore. (Isaiah 2:4). This was a very brave person who loved life and loved us all by multiple selfless acts during a rich lifetime helping others. Coming in the near future many will reap the rewards of a peaceful new world God has promised. 2 Peter 3:13.
I was an MP NCO stationed in Mainz FRG in 1980. He was the community commander. I got to speak with him on several occasions. One day he asked me if there was anything he could do for us MP's. I told him we were only issued 1 magazine for our pistols. On Monday when we arrived at the PMO we were issued 3 magazines. I also served as one of his body guards when the Pope was at Finthen Army Air Field in 1980. He was a Great General and I would have followed Him to the gates of hell.
I will miss my commander may the lord bless and may our general take a seat and take command of the forces MANY BLESSINGS AND GREETINGS FROM US ALL OF
thanks general for all that you have done for this great nation and may you rest now good and faithful servant.
Thank you gen. God bless.
My respect for your service.
Thomas R. Bostic, USN, Retired, Vietnam Vet
know God will Bless You Sir, I Hope will Bless your Familia with Many Fond memories.
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
A Great Leader. I served under his Command during the Gulf War. Keep them all in line at the BIG HOUSE SIR!!!
My grandson graduated from West Point in 2006 and I was so proud to learn that Gen. Schwarzkopf would be there that week and so very proud when he presented the lt. bars and shook his hand. My grandson then ran up to the stands where we sat and said " Here Granny, this is the hand that just shook with the Pres. and the Gen. Schwarzkopf." He knew that I loved and admired the Gen. after reading his book. He had more stars in his crown than he wore on his shoulder. I am sure he is finding his well deserved peace in Heaven.
Rest In peace, General. Thank You For Your Service To Our Country. See You On The Other Side Some Beautiful Day.
He was a legend and a man who could bring out the best in a soldier
"Old soldiers never die. They only fade away". Godspeed as Heaven gains a great General. My prayers go out to his family and friends.
Dear General, you've been my role model since I read your autobiography "It Doesn't Take a Hero". Duty, Honor, Country, Competence, Character, Care & Respect for others became my fixed stars as well. Thank you Sir and rest in peace! May God bless you and your family!!!
Sorry for the loss of your love one.
God give us a wonderful hope.
I am just an American citizen. I didn't serve with the General or anything, but when I heard of his death, I felt the country had lost one of the Best. My heart was broken.He was atrue patriot. My heart is still heavy over his loss and I send my sympathy to the family. The only thing I can say is, it is our great loss, but God's gain at having such a man as Gen. Schwarzkopf to be a part of His kindgom. I know God was happy to Welcome Such a Fine Man. I am heartbroken, but you must be moreso, just know that he truly is in the presence of the Lord. My sympathies to all of the family. Just know, you will be with him again.
god came and wrap his arms around him and took him home to rest in peace sorry too hear may god bless you all
He once said to me; "Treat everyone like a 4-star General regardless of Rank." He had a way of making everyone feel special. It was a great honor to have served him during and after the Gulf War. A true Hero!
It ws an honor too have served under him.
May he rest in peace.
Love and prayers go out to the family of this much loved and admired patriot. The world was a much better place because of men such as the General. May God comfort the family as only He can.
The United States has lost a great advocate, a great friend, and a great man. We were all was very sad to learn of his death. This special man will always be remembered by the family of my father who has since passed away, James W. Hicks. To us, "Stormin Norman" was a Gentle Bear who was very well loved. We are so appreciative of his efforts and very grateful to him for his service. May God Bless him in Heaven and reward him for all of his efforts to bring peace to a horrendous world. From our family Bea Hicks and the girls; God Bless you Brenda and your family, we wish for God to be at your side. May your future be bright and happy and know that he is in a wonderful loving environment and well taken care of, in Christ's hands. May God Bless your Entire Family and their future.
My heart is broken. Our General, and the greatest hero of our time has passed, never to be replaced. I'm a calligrapher & during the end of the Gulf War I lettered the General's favorite song "I'm Proud to be an American", framed it and sent it to him. He responded within three days & said he would find a prominent place in his home for it. Everytime I hear this song I will always think of the General. It is who he was. My sincere condolences to his wife, children and the rest of his family. He will never be forgotten. God Bless.
Our prayers are with you and your children during this difficult time. Norm was a great boss and mentor but an even better friend. I will always remember our fishing hunting and skiing adventures in Alaska and Virginia. You always knew where you stood with your husband and what he was going to love or hate. If it was good for the troops he was always on board.
We will miss him.
Tom and Lucy Fields
You will be missed by ALL who served in the Army during Vietnam & Desert Storm. Your family's loss is also a loss to ALL Amry familes and our nation. God speed and keep on smiling in heaven. During OEF/OIF I served under GEN Franks as the HQ CMDT. Thanks for serving 35 years in the Army. May you rest in peace at Arlington.
America has lost a great patriot son for whom I have DEEP RESPECT! Fair winds and following seas General. It was a high honor to serve under such a GREAT MAN!
Brenda, I just finished speaking with you on the phone. Karen and I called to see how you were holding up. We love You and The General and will miss him so very much. Our friendship is 21 years old and we always so looked forward to visiting with You and The General around Christmas every year. Our visit next year just won't be the same without Him there. I am posting a picture from a few years ago of You and The General when Leo decided that he wanted to be in the picture. It is wonderful to see You Both holding each other and laughing because Leo decided that this picture was not going to happen without him being in it. Karen and I Love you and will see you soon. Much Love And Respect Vinnie and Karen.
Missions Accomplished and Jobs Well Done... Present, Arms to you General!
Dear Brenda and Family, Please accept our deepest sympathy and prayers for the loss of this great man, husband, father, and military leader. Thank you for the countless sacrifices that you had to make over the years as a military family. It was our pleasure to have known you and an honor to have served in Vietnam, Germany, and the Pentagon with such an inspiring mentor of soldiers. A grateful nation mourns with you. May the many memories and friends continue to ease your sadness, and may God's love and blessings embrace you always.
To be said also of this true warrior, God speed~
Of David. Blessed be the Lord, my rock, who trains my hands for war, and my fingers for battle; he is my steadfast love and my fortress, my stronghold and my deliverer, my shield and he in whom I take refuge, who subdues peoples under me.
May God keep you under his wing. You are One Great man! God Bless you General.....
Gen. Schwarzkopf must be remembered for his admorable leadership, serving this countries values. His family is in my prayers as I know he is now with God.
We lost a "Great Leader/American" and like our POW/MIA's, you will never be forgotten. I'am also a Vietnam Vet and looking forward to serving with you again. God Bless your family and I wish you all the very best.

I had the distinct honor of serving as a CINC Communicator for General Schwartzkopf, and he once called me his hero for fixing his daughters Neon Telephone, when he brought it to me in pieces after he tried to fix it. LOL Well Sir, you are the true American Hero, and it was a privlege and utmost honer to have worked side by side with you those years we traveled all over the world. Brenda, My sympathies to you and your family. You are one of the most kindest woman I know, you would celebrate the birthdays of those on our team, and we felt like family. God bless you all and RIP Sir, God has callen on you to be his General against evil.
To the Schwarzkopf family.
My sincere condolences for your loss. I didn't know the General. But, I have a friend who served under him. God Bless all of you, now and always.
R.I.P. Stormin Norman, job well done, you will be missed. Prayers out to the family.
May God give you all comfort and strength during this difficult time. Thank you General for protecting our Country and unselfish dedication to The United States of America, you will never be forgotten.
My condolences to Mrs. Schwarzkopf and your children and other family members as you seek to grieve and find comfort.
A true patriot, hero and gentleman. Looking back at my father's military photos, I was thankful he served his country in WWII. I am just as thankful to you for protecting our troops and country during my lifetime. You made a deep impact on my life.. and will be greatly missed. Our loss is heaven's gain.
To the Schwarzkopf family, my deepest condolence. I served the General in Desert Storm, I would loved him as my commander, as a honorable man and patriot. I still have the recorded message from Brenda, on behalf of the General to me about signing my book. He didn't have the chance to call but felt it important enough to have hiis wife personally call me. Truely a chivalrous and great man. Thank you General, and thank you to your family for thier support. Your will be missed, and remembered always. If you lead, I will follow you anywhere.
One of the greatest military leaders in the history of the USA. My condolences to his family, the US Army, the US Military and the USA. Rest in Peace...Sir!

Thanks you so much for all your hard work in protecting this country.May God bless t his family.
I made the honest mistake of calling him "The Bear" when introduced to him during Desert Shield. He just laughed and asked "So what do they call you?" He was very fond of the enlisted ranks and took every effort to visit and encourage them.
From a "Redhawk" to a Brave Warrior...Gods Speed til we rendevous in Heaven.

In My Pocket
I have memories in my pocket.
They rattle among the change.
My memories of you are treasures I carry wherever I go.
They are stored in bits and pieces, parts of a beautiful whole
They give me comfort when I think I am alone.
Yes, I have memories in my pocket, like so much other stuff I keep there.
But of all the treasures I have, it's the memories of you that are the most precious.
By Lamaretta Simmons

I was deeply saddened to hear of the death of General Schwartzkopf. He was a great General,father and husband and will be greatly missed. Thank you for all your years of service. My condolences to the family. He will be greatly missed.
The General was an outstanding American. His family has the right to be very proud.
Thank you for your service General.
One of the GREATS in the anals of U.S. military history. It was an honor to serve under "The Bear". RIP my friend.
As a Canadian, I watched the war on Television. I watched his down to earth, descriptive, pictorial news briefings. I had nothing but respect for him as a man, soldier, husband and father. The world is a far better place because of him. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time. It must be difficult to accept that he is gone as he was so much larger than life.
It was an honor to service under his command in the 2nd ACR / 1st Infantry Division. His brilliant strategy and his staff in leveraging Maneuver Warfare. Rest in Peace General.
My daughter is a proud participant of the
school named for such an impeccable icon!
I'd had the honor of meeting the General
during a 4th of July party in our area,
and he's an admirable person. His very
strong sample of defending the weakest
while standing as the true respectable
leader he is for our American citizens!
We'll carry on a true tradition of his
spirit that is pride within our country!
Schwarzkopf Cup 1991 will remain in our
memories as the encouragement of faith!
A great man with a large sum of "class". He served us all well as citizens of the this USA. May God hold him in the palm of His Hands.
All the makings of what "A President" should be - An Extraordinary man. INTELLIGENCE, HONOR, and COMPASSION! So few of him left..Rest In Peace General..
I served with "the Bear" as he liked to be called in the Pentagon for 5 years -- a great and well respecteed soldier and leader
We thank God for the life of Gen. Schwarzkopf and for having allowed him to share a part of his life with us feeding those who were hungry during the annual Thanksgiving dinner at Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church. It is my prayer that God will grant to Mrs. Schwarzkopf and their family grace at all times to acknowledge and accept His holy and gracious will, to remain in the true faith and to find peace and joy in the resurrection of the dead and the glory of everlasting life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Charles T. Trower Pastor Emeritus Zion Ev. Lutheran Church

THANK YOU MR. VETERAN
Thank you Mr. Veteran.
We salute you—
Who've fought for our freedoms
To go, and come and do.
Our children and grandchildren
Can have a future too:
A better chance at life—
To make their dreams come true.
Thank you for your sacrifice
In times of war and peace.
And for the miles trekked—
O'er land and the seas.
Thank you for your time away
From family and friend;
And for all the leisure
That could have been.
I have often wondered
What would make you go—
Lay it all on the line
For those whom you least know.
Although, I must admit—
I have yet to understand,
I know that it was for
The good of the land.
And to your fellow comrades—
Veterans like you—
Would you pass the word
That I 'thank' them too.
Tell them that their sacrifice,
As long as we shall live,
Will be the noble gift
That continues to give.

To The Family Of A True American Hero:
The General was a man to be honored, respected and admired. I am proud to have served in The United States Army he recreated and the pride he instilled in America's military. Four everlasting stars fell on a graduate of the USMA in 1956 that will be fondly and lovingly remembered.
He was a truly a great man, excellent soldier, and caring father. My condolences to the Schwarzkopf family for their great loss.

GEN. SCHWARZKOPF, A TRUE AMERICAN A GREAT LEADER. GOODSPEED MY FRIEND GOD BLESS!
After reading General Schwarzkopf's book besides proud of him I would call him a "HERO". My prayers r with family and friends. He will be missed.
So very sorry to hear of the passing of this illustrious gentleman!! I always hoped one day he would run for President of the USA! He would have made a good one!!! He is to be commended for all of his great and admirable deeds for the US. He will be greatly missed.
A Great Man, in and out of uniform. Had the pleasure of fishing with him and his son 20 yrs ago on the Su-sitna river in AK. He had me take a picture with them after I put new line on his reel and he caught a large king salmon. Kept the pic on my desk while serving in the AF and now have it on my shelf at home. I feel honored to have met him.
God bless us with him , and with his work we are still have freedom.

Our country needs men like you to lead and guide, especially during this turbulent time of domestic unrest and failure to thrive. You were respected and you will be missed. My sympathy to your wife and children.
God bless you and your family for all you did in serving this country! You were truly the epitomy of an American hero. You will be missed more than you know.

America's Hero, never forgotten.

Rest in Peace, General Schwarzkopf. You are my hero. Bless you and your family. Barbara Prescott,Az
Thanks for the good worked, i dont know why God takes the good people..my God bless your family....
General Norman Schwarzkopf - a true American hero. Earth has no sorrow that Heaven cannot heal. The Schwarzkopf Family have my deepest sympathy.
May your family be blessed with love and God's strength at this time. This is your last post, sir, till we all meet again.
What an honor to have you lead us in the Gulf War 1990-91! May the "Bear" cotinue to find honey in heaven!!
Probably one of, if not the, most brilliant military mines of the history of this nation. Thank you sir for your service and now you may enjoy the ultimate promotion afforded us by the son of God, Jesus Christ. See you on the other side sir!
To a great leader will be missed. We are so sorry!
I met the General while I was stationed in Alaska and at Fort Lewis WA., he was only a colonel then. I later ran into him again during other excursions. I was highly impressed with the General, he never forgot your name, even if he hadn't seen you for a few years.
I also remembered something he once said about fellow soldier who had died; "Old Soldiers never die, they just report to the ultimate Commander in the heavans high".
Rest in peace dear General; you will be missed.
Thank- you for all your service to our country; we are grateful. May God bless your family,& guide thnem in the days ahead.
Schwarzkopf Family, you, our country, and humanity have lost a good man who shall long be remembered. Without knowing him personally, I admired him as a no nonsense soldier, having read of his minefield rescue of a young soldier in Viet Nam, and having seen him in his daily news briefings regarding Desert Storm. It was impressive and refreshing to see him "remind" the media that he was telling them what they needed to know, and nothing more. I wish I could have met him. My sympathy to all of you in your loss. May God grant you comfort and solace. A veteran
Thank you for your wonderful honest service to our Country. God bless!!!
To the Schwarzkopf Family: The General was an outstanding man. If he was allowed to utilize his "military instincts" in Iraq, America would never had to go back there. He had a brilliant military mind and he was a true hero. It's now time for him to rest, so may God surround you with strength at this very sorrowful time. Just one of his millions of admirers
You will be greatly missed. It waa an Honor to Trap for you and meet you wife Brendan and your daugther Jessie. Unfortuantly Time did not permit me to to meet with Cynthis or Christian. We always talked about families and how they put up with us.
Say hello John Wayne for me. You will always be remembered as a friend, wise teach, and a all around great person and friend. What a honor to be called your friend.
Stormin Norman you won't be forgotten! God speed General!
It was a pleasure and honor to have met and fly you while in S. A. Sir while with the 101st. I'll always smile rembering as you climbed on board the aircraft, if I knew how to start this thing up. When I said I just read the directions last night, your laughter put the crew right at ease. I thank you for your concern for all serving there and your patriotism General as I now pray for the comfort of your family. CW4 (Ret) Bill Condon, US Army.
He was the speaker at my niece's graduation from the University of Richmond in 1999. He was the first and last graduation speaker I've ever heard that held my interest, and I was sorry when his speech was over. I admired him greatly. My sympathies to his family.
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
No words could fully convey the respect, gratitude and loss that we all feel. Those who have had the privledge to serve with you simply stand and raise their hand in salute and say, "thank you Sir"
Gen.Schwarzkopf,Sir,I salute you,for your unselfish service to our country, and may you rest in peace. Louis Fix,U.S.Army Security Agency---1966 to 1969
I vividly remember the call from then Mayor Dick Greco asking me if I would like to meet and shoot sporting clays with General Norman Schwarzkopf. In our teens, Dick and I shot skeet competitively all over the country and won a number of events. While I continued to be a avid bird hunter, I had not shot clays in years, and never sporting clays, but I jumped at the opportunity. We met at the gun club and the General insisted that I shot his prize Beretta, a gift to him from Beretta after Dessert Storm. The gun was worth over 50 times more than any gun I had ever owned up until that time. Dick had told the General that I was an excellant shot, but I was so nervous I missed the first 5 targets.
From that beginning developed a tremendous relationship. Practically every Saturday we would shoot together. He was fun to be with and a great competitor. He hated to lose, and I consider that a virtue. I worked with him an participated in The Schwarzkopf Cup which raised millions for those with spinal injuries. When the property where the gun club was located was sold, Norm and I joined a group that purchased the property were Tampa Bay Sporting Clays is located and where he has chaired every year charity shoots that have raised millions for The Children's Home.
He is an outstanding individual and admired friend who will be missed. God bless his family.
It was an honor to have served under your command in Desert Storm, and an honor to shake your hand on Christmas Day, 1990, in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Rest in peace, Bear.
Gone too soon. Rest in peace.
Thank you sir, fair winds and following seas ! Rest well soldier !
One of America's Best. Rest in peace! General!!
To the Family of Gen.H.Norman Schwarzkopf, Please accept my sincere condolences for the loss of your loved one. May you look forward to a time when this verse comes true "And He will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away".
Some people in life will always be remembered. I always admired your strong hold you had as being a Commander in Chief. Yes, God does have a purpose for all of us to fill and you served it well with dignity.
He ranks among the most elite who served in the US ARMY during two wars. A true warrior and leader of men and absolutely a man of extreme valor and selflessness. My heartfelt salute to his family and my thanks for his sacrifice and service.

Bear...He Loved This Country.....God Wanted Him Home..Rip Norman....
To a great leader who will be greatly missed. R.I.P. General
A true Warrior, who stood on the field of battle with many of us.
He was my commanding General when I served with Combat Support Company of the 2nd Battalion, 21st Infantry Regiment, 24th Infantry Division (Mechanized) at Fort Stewart, GA. He was a great leader. He told us what he wanted from us; he believed we could get it done. He expected us to do it. He did not mix words, You knew he meant what he said and he said what he meant. But the General was also down to earth; a real person. There was nothing pretentious or arrogant about him. I respected and admired him. "Gimlets are fanatics Sir!" You'll be missed. Sergeant Gerald Phipps, U.S. Army Infantry - The 24th Infantry Sir!

May God Bless and hold up your family.
The General was a true leader of men. He lead by example and set out to always win. He would have made a great Secratary of Defense if he were called upon to do so. He always told it like it was never holding the truth back. He had the respect of every man the served under him. We should look upon his life as a true testament of a true American. Men of his nature are few these days and we shall never forget him.
Thank you for your service.
Rest well soldier.
Thank you, sir and may you rest in peace.
A great American Hero, You will be missed.
Rest in peace General. Job well done. May you rest peacefully in GOD's loving arms.

The Final Salute
“Brothers in Arms”, Military men and women down through the centuries, have traditionally exchanged “Hand Salutes” as a sign of recognition and as a way to render courtesy and respect one to another.
This “Hand Salute” is the last that we shall render to Gen. H. Norman Scharzkopf our “Brother-in-Arms”. To his family it symbolizes the love and respect that we have for Gen. Scharzkopf. And to Gen. Scharzkopf it is rendered as a symbol of honor and gratitude to thank him for the devoted and selfless service he rendered to his country during the Vietnam war and Operation Desert Storm while serving in the U.S. Army. Gen. Scharzkopf, you are a true patriot, who served with honor and distinction. You upheld the finest qualities of an American patriot warrior: courage, commitment, generosity, sacrifice, love and devotion to family and country. We bid you a sad farewell. You will be dearly missed from among our ranks. Be at Ease. Rest in Peace.
On behalf of the 1,261 military veteran Legionnaires of Lowe-McFarlane Post 14 of the American Legion, I extend our sympathies and our condolences to Gen. Scharzkopf's family and loved ones.
Stephen J. Lavery, Commander, American Legion Post 14

Thank you, Sir, for your loyalty and service to our country. May your family and friends find comfort in knowing that we are grateful for your life too!
Rest in peace Norman . You are in the Lords army now !!
I pray these words God gave me will comfort you. MESSAGE FROM NORMAN - I know your hearts are heavy and you miss having me there but I'm with God in heaven where no one has a care. I just shook hands with Moses, I met Job and Daniel too. Now I am enjoying a body that's brand new. It really was amazing when I walked through the gate I saw the beauty of this place and I could hardly wait. To come into the presence of the Father and the Son; hearing him say to me the priceless words WELL DONE! Jesus took me by the hand and said I'm so glad you're here. Come sit beside me for a while and let me hold you near. Then he took me down the streets & running to meet me were precious friends and loved ones I had longed to see. People I didn't know came up to me and said, because you gave of yourself God saw that I was fed. The Lord has given every soul a special job to do. My job friends and family is watching over you. Soon we will be together never more to part. Until then just remember I'm as close as your heart.
General thanks for our time together in KSA

Gen .Schwarzkopf was my favorite General and perhaps the greatest Gen. that was born and raised in N.J.I saw him at the NYC Welcome Home Parade for Persian Gulf Veterans and at the dedication of the N.J. Vietnam Memorial in Holmdel,in his speech there, when he said, the title he was most proud of was ,"Vietnam Veteran" he certainly inspired me and many other Vietnam Veterans in the crowd!His service in Vietnam and the Persian Gulf War will always be remembered by me. A great ,brave, and heroic military leader has left us and the world is a poorer place!R.I.P.
He was a great human being. Frankly, I loved him for protecting his troops and country.I'm sure he was also a wonderful father and husband. RIP

I am so sorry for your lost. Gen Schwarzkopf was my husbands idol. I wrote him asking him to attend a service I was giving my husband in presenting the Am. Legion post 414 in Lawrenceville, New Jersey a stone remembering desert storm, thinking he would turn me down for a small town request. But no, he returned my call and was there for the service. No job was ever to small or big for that man. In my book he will always be remembered.
You will be remembered in our prayers, this country will miss a great hero, thank you for your services.
Sorry about your lost. I too had family and friends that served in the military.

Goodbye, great soldier. The Country needs more like you. Semper Fi from a Marine, Vietnam Vet.
I had the pleasure of a 15 minute conversation with Gen.Schwarzkopf in Miami Customs a few years ago. He was returning from a speaking tour. An honorable, likeable man and a great military man.
Thank You for Your integrity & principle in serving Our Country Bravely.My condolences to Your Loved Ones.
He is known as “the finest of Americans”. Though I never met him, I admired him as he was my leader during the first Iraqi conflict, Desert Storm. I watched every interview with him - mesmerized by his intelligence, humility, and charisma. Though I never had a hero growing up nor any in my young adult life, he was one of two heroes that I have.
I will miss him.
May you rest in ever loving arms .God bless you and those who loved you Joyce in Macon ga
Thank you find your service , sir.
I served under this remarkable officer while attached to the now gone 3rd Armored Div. With highest regard.

I met Gen. Schwarzkopf during the Gulf War. He was the type of man that when he spoke you listened. He was an inspiration, motivating, and heartfelt speaker; that inspired me throughout my 22 years of military service and continuing through my retirement. I am truly blessed to have shared the same ground as HE.
My deepest condolences go out to the Schwarzkopf family. May God grant you His peace and comfort; now and in the hour of your need.

Dear Mrs. Schwarzkopf and Family, My deepest condolences for the loss of your husband and father. Truly, he served his Country well and was a great man. My the LORD comfort you during these times.
Although I didn't know you personally, I feel I knew you due to the coverage of news, I want to thank you for your service, and my thoughts, and prayers are with your family. Thank you again!
Gen Schwarzkopf you will be truly missed. My brother (Smitty) was your Enlisted-Aide at Ft. Stewart, GA, Ft. Lewis, WA and at DCOPS. Sir when my wife and I married we were allowed to stay at your guest quarters on Ft. Stewart for a brief honeymoon. When we first met you, you were an imposing figure, but gentle as a "Bear". Even though I was an E-5 at the time you made me feel like I was equal to you. You took the time to find out about me as a person. You were compassionate and caring. I still have the picture you signed for me prior to departing for Korea. To the family, hope you'll find comfort in his life. He'll be truly missed. (Smitty's younger brother)
My prayers to the Schwarzkopf family, General Schwarzkopf thank you for being a hero to so many Americans

I have a had the distinct honor and privilage to have met you. You will greatly missed. To the family you have left behind they will be taken care as they have before when you were on a mission for our country. For you my friend you are on to the next mission were other await your presence where you will only find world peace through the heavenly gates. I will see you again my friend when its my turn to go. I found a poem by Jilchristy Dee ""You risked your life for others
Each and every day
Understanding and accepting the potential cost
That someday you might pay
For such is the path of a Hero
A terrain where only the brave would choose to go
For 'tis like a mountain pass, narrow and rugged
Far removed from the peaceful vally down below
Yet you walked that difficult path daily
Seeing harsh things, while doing such good
And we loved and respected your courage
More than you understood
And you were a blessing to countless people
Through your selfless and courageous deeds ..."
"Your efforts will impact generations
Through lives saved, and all the good you did
Truly...you were OUR HERO
And we all thank God that you lived!"
Please accept my deepest condolences. He fought hard to help others and make things better. May you find comfort in Psalms 37:11. This shows that in Gods New World The peaceful conditions he fought for will soon be done on a worldwide scale by means of Gods Kingdom.
Thank you for your service and you'll be missed.
I had the priviledge of knowing and working for this amazing man at MacDill AFB. My prayers and condolences for Brenda and the family. May you Rest in Peace Stormin' Norman.

I never had the opportunity of meeting this fine Officer in person, but as a veteran I will miss him dearly. May you rest in peace. You and your family are in my prayers. I wrote a poem earlier that I would like to dedicate to a General who will be missed.
A Veterans Prayer
Dear Heavenly Father up above
We ask you fill our hearts with love
We give ourselves to defend our land
Across the seas in blood drenched sand
The battle rages everyday
We ask You guide us along our way
Our brothers and sisters who don't come home
May they rest in Peace and never be alone
We count the days as the end draws near
Trying to stay strong and show no fear
Our families wait with arms stretched wide
For the day we are together side by side
So as the tears fall down our face
We ask you Lord please keep us safe.
Deepest sympathy, thoughts & prayers go out to the family and friends of General Schwarzkopf. He was a fine leader and made people feel a bit safer with him in the lead. He was a fine example of what this country needs and he did a fine job leading our troops. God bless & comfort each of you in your time of sorrow and in the days, weeks, & months to come.

A great man for his time. Thanks
I Sincerely Offer My Condolence: Norman's death has no doubt cast a shadow over you as you go about your daily life because death brings us face-to-face with the fact that he is gone too soon. His presence will be dearly missed. So despite the pain of grief, let it be your solve to continue to work your way through pain and grief. The rich life that he led has left many memories. Sometimes we may feel paralyzed by a tragedy such as this. Remember: God can help you to endure any and every problem they may face. He will give you the "power beyond what is normal" to go from one day to the next. (2Corinthians 4:7)
My deepest regrets and greatest respect.
I wish I had had the honor of knowing him.
Amen to a great leader and
even greater human being.
Brenda, I am so sad to hear of your loss. I will cherish my memories of him forever! Thank you for allowing me to be part of your lives. We will stay in touch. I am here if you need anything. You did such a wonderful job. I am so so sorry! My love to you, your family and Lynn.
I know my Brother John and Dad Tony are waiting at the gate to shake the hand of a wonderful General.
You have my deepest sympathy. May good memories provide solace for your family during this challenging time; and may God provide you with the assurance that you will see your loved one again in Paradise. John 17:3

General you were bigger than life to a lot of people. I for one wished you and Colin Powell had run for President and Vice President. You would have won hands down. We really needed a hero at that time and you were it. You told it how it was and didn't try to pull the wool over anyone's eyes. I admired you very much. Anyone in thier right mind would have. God Bless you and your family.
RIP SIR, I was in the Gulf War with you and you was and will always be a great leader. The ARMY Value's are a reflection of you and your commitment to this Nation. Army Strong

Thank You for your dedicated service to the United States of America. God Bless You.
America has lost a true Hero. We will never forget you.
In my book you matched all the great military leaders, Grant, Lee, Pershing, Ike, and Mac.
Thank you for your service and commitment to our country. God Bless you.
I served with GEN Schwarzkopf when he was our Commander of the 24th INF DIV (MECH) at Ft. Stewart, GA in 1985-86. He was our guest speaker at my Primary Leadership Development Course (PLDC). He was speaking on the NCO Creed. When he got to the part about NCO's being the backbone of the Army, he replied, "My NCO's are not the backbone of the Army," (the auditorium fell deafly quiet) he continued, "MY NCO's are the Blood, Guts and Muscle of the MY Army and they will lead our Soldiers and carve "V's" (for the Victory Division) in the foreheads of our enemies!"..The place went nuts. I'll never forget the General and the impact that he had on me. He will be missed and should go down as a true American hero. When I shook his hand, I remember the size of his hands... he was a man's man.. a Leader that commanded respect. Thank you for your contribution to our Country.
Very respectfully submitted,

R.I.P. Gen. Schwarzkopf. We all love you here. Wayne & Kitty Rogers
My deepest sympathy goes out to the family of General H. Norman Schwarzkopf. America has lost one of it greatest. Thank you for sharing him with America. Blessings,
Now all of the men in heaven have another story to listen to with the General joining them. My father was a great fan of yours; say hi to him in heaven.
You could have heard a pin drop in an auditorium in Dallas TX during a NADA conference where thousands of business professionals awaited General Norman Schwarzkopf answer to the big question;
“To what do you attribute your outstanding success as a Leader in Desert Storm”? Stormin Norman was quick to clarify the success was not his, but our country's, & he restated the question as to what he considered his “most valued resource” to his success & his answer was…..”PEOPLE”!
What a simple, selfless, but profound statement from the General that stood at attention before us, honoring his troops, respecting man-kind & heralding our country.
A 42 year wife of a Disabled Viet Nam American Vet!
To the Schwarzkopf family:
My condolences for the loss of General H. Norman. May God's Word provide you strength during this difficult time. (Isa. 41:10,13)
Gen. Schwarzkopf was one of the more enduring legacies of the Vietnam War and made us proud as our commander in the first Iraqui war when he kicked butt. A true American hero,may he rest in peace for eternity. I'm proud to have him on our side. Blessings to his family.
God Bless Norman,Thank you for being the kind of man that you were.Thank you for getting my sons home safe and sound from the war(desert storm/shield).You will not be forgotten.Thank you to his family for sharing him with all of us.
Mere words cannot express the gratitude I feel for your service to our country. I especially am grateful for your leadership in Desert Storm...you brougth my son home safe and not in a body bag as the media was predicting.

From this civilian's point of view, General Schwarzkopf was a General among generals who set the standard of who and what a general of an American military force should be. He was well respected amongst his peers and charges alike, and so very much admired and loved by the American people. I wish you Godspeed, General Schwarzkopf sir, as you venture forth to serve under the ultimate Commander-in-Chief. Thank you from a grateful citizen.

Sleep well, General. We all sleep better because of your service and efforts. It's difficult to draw a tear from and old "mud soldier" but, like everything else that you've accomplished, you got a few from me this morning. To your entire family, sir, thank you for sharing him with our country.

God be with your family. At this time

May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
Thank you Schwarzkopf family for your service to our nation. I will remember Norman as a Great and honarable leader and Commander and a true Patriot to our country. Bod Bless.
A nation mourns the loss of a great man and leader. I had the priviledge and honor to serve under General Schwarzkopf in J6 during DESERT SHIELD/STORM. Firm but fair, he always put the troops first. Before the days of email and Skype, his leadership to field the Phone Home program became the biggest morale booster of the war for the troops. I owe much to that experience and to the leadership of General H. Norman Schwarzkopf. We could use leadership and men of his caliber now. My deepest sympathy to the family and a final salute to General Schwarzkopf. RIP. Godspeed.
General, I had the honor to serve while you were at the helm. An ABSOLUTE job WELL DONE, Sir. I stand and salute you! May you rest in peace and may your family's hearts be lightened by knowing how well you are loved.Hasn't been a great one like you since.
United States Navy, Retired
I was in my early twenties when Desert Storm was announced. I remember feeling safer because the General was on our side. I want to thank his family for sharing him with this country. I can only imagine the sacrifices you have had to make, please remember we in the USA are all better for his service. All my sympathy to his family and close friends.
Thank you for your service to our country. Please tell Saint Peter hello. May God Bless your family and continue to Bless the United States of America.
Thank You very much Sir for your service in protecting Our Country!! God Bless and may you Rest in Peace.
Another true hero is gone. God bless his family.
I was a civilian at OPM SANG during Desert Storm/Shield and know that the General was truly an "Officer and a Gentleman", he was a great leader and will be missed. He has left a great legacy. Love and Prayers to his family.
To the family..my God hears your sorrow and will be with you. REST IN PEACE.
To the family..my God hears your sorrow and will be with you. REST IN PEACE.
What a man! Peace, at last. Bless your family.
Farewell to a fellow Brother in Arms
A great American! Thank you. Rest in peace.
We mourn the loss of one of the greatest military leaders since Omar Bradley, Nimitz, and Halsey - The man is more than deserving of a fifth star
The General, at the Dedication of the New Jersey Vietnam Memorial, stated:
"I make No Apologies for what We Did in Vietnam!"
Several thousand Vietnam veterans cheered the loudest I've ever heard.
Old Soldiers Never Die,
They Just Fade Away.
Rest In Peace, General
Thank you General for being A Great Patriot! I lost my brother Patrick in the Vietnam War and you helped my griefing of telling your story and how important it was that we has Americans welcome our Vietnam Soldiers back and give tribute and thanks to them all especially the ones that gave up their lives for us so we as Americans could continue to live free.
My sympathy goes out to your family and a big Thank You to them sacrificing without you while you were serving our Country. God now has one of the Best Generals that served our country.
Sean C. Byrne
I still remember him as my Cadet Comander in Valley Forge during my first year in 1956
I read his book and was enlightened by his charisma and caringness for his troops. We should have generals like him guide our country now. Great stamina, outspoken and truthful to his troops. RIP
Rest in Peace General Schwarzkopf. Thank You for Serving Your Country. Your Family are in my prayers.
May the "Bear" rest in peace and joy. Grateful for his leadership. I have read that he wanted to be thought of as a decent and caring person. No worries there. "Well done, good and faithful servant."
God comfort each and every one of those who love him.
RIP Gen. Schwarzkopf, Thank You for your years honorable service and leadership. You Sir hold a special place in my heart! May your family be comforted in this time of grief.
He was my hero. Please except my sympathies. I wish we had more just like him. Rest in Peace General. Job well done.
It was a priviledge to serve under you during Operatons Urgent Fury and Desert Shield/Storm. May God grant your family peace during this difficult time of transition.
Rest in peace good and faithful man
Dear General Norman Schwarzkopf, Thank you for all your services. You were a great leader and humble person. To the family -May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived My deepest sympathy to the family.
Sending my condolence to all, may God comfort you. Psalms 5:28,29
Stand down Sir. Your mission is accomplished. Rest now. To the Schwarzkopf Family, my sincerest condolences and absolute gratitude for sharing this Great Man with all of his Soldiers. Because of him, we all came home. God Bless You.
Duty, Honor, and Country.
I had the honor and privilege to hear General Schwarzkopf speak at our Customer Conference many years ago and can't say enough about the respect that I have for this man. I wish that we had more people like him. It was truly an opportunity that will always be remembered.
MISSION ACCOMPLISHED !!!!!!! REST IN PEACE!!!!
Rest in peace General Schwarzkopf.
Rest in God's peace Warrior. Thank you for dedicating your life to the security of our Republic...you will never be forgotten.
RIP Sir, your tour is over
Gen. Schwarzkopf was a soldiers soldier.
He really liked the nco´s and lower grades. He said what he thought. and meant what he said. He will be deeply
missed. He deserves a state funeral.
May you rest in peace. Thank you for your service to our country. You will not be forgotten. My prayers go out to your family
Old Soldiers never die, they just fade away.
An inspiring leader who lead by example, were the soldier felt his presence during his physical absence. His presence will always be felt by veterans and their families. Old soldiers never die, we just fade away. Our general will always be there, present in the annals of history. May his family feel our love and support.
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!
We lost another great man today. We need more men lik this man! To you and yoir family thank you for your sevice!
An American giant, and a hero, prayers and condolences to his family
God Bless you, Even in the Bible the Lord tells us to fight for what is right, with in him. Thank you for saving what was right. Man kind, Linda

A Veterans Prayer
Dear Heavenly Father up above
I ask you fill our Hearts with love

Across the seas in blood drenched sand
The battles rage everyday
I ask you guide them along their way
My brothers and sisters who don't come home
May they rest in Peace and never be alone

Trying to stay strong and show no fear
Our families wait with arms stretched wide
Waiting the days till we are at their side
So as the tears fall down our face
I ask the Lord......Please keep us safe.
General Schwarzkopf, May you rest in PEACE. You are a true hero and I thank you for your service, but most of all thank you for bringing our troops home safe from Desert Storm, including my brother. You will always have a special place in my heart.

Ret-SMSGT Malcolm Walters-(Lafayette, LA.)
My hearthfelt condolences go out to the family. What a great leader he was and the epitome of what one would think generals are made of. I still have a pair of the boots said to be designed by the general. I wore them a couple of times and then I just stored them away. I look at those and it reminds me of the times that we fought with a purpose and we knew what the end game was. Today, I am not so sure. Rest in peace General H. Norman Schwarzkopf, you will always be remembered.
Rest in Peace, a great leader. Thank you for your service to our country.
God speed storming Norman. You are a true Amarican hero . Bless your family my deepest sympathy. Patricia G.
May God Rest your Soul, Thank you for your service to The United States of America and Humanity Everywhere!

Thank you so much for dedicating your life to our nation and to the preservation of democracy. You are and shall always remain an American hero.

We are eternally grateful for his service to our country and his involvement in many charitable organizations.
Our prayer is God will comfort the family in their time of sorrow, and they remain in thoughts and prayers.
Gen. Thank you for your service. Once Gen. Macarthur said "Old Soldiers never die, they just fade away. You just faded away,but will live in the military memories. Life is not a destiny, Life is a journey.
Our prayers are for General Schwarzkopf's family, may our Lord bless and comfort them in this time of great loss. I had the honor of being called to active duty and serving under Gen. Schwarzkopf in the U S Air Force, during the Gulf War. I was proud to serve under his great leadership. He was a true American Hero and a great leader!
General, Thank you for your service. Once Gen. Macarthur said "Old soldiers never die they just fade away" You did not die you always will live in the military memories. "Life is not a destiny, Life is a journey"
Thank you Stormin Norman for service to our country. You will be missed.
God Bless You and keep you in His loving care. Thank You for your service to our country and to us all. You were One of the Best this Country had to offer.
Thank You Sir for your loyal service to our country. May you rest in peace. The world has lost a true hero.
Thank you Sir for being A Great American Hero with Class.My Prayers go out to his Family and Friends.

You will always live in our hearts and prayers.
Old soldiers never die, they just fade away. Well done General, I salute you. My condolences to the family. Your conrad in arms.
Great to be part of desert Storm with u and 101st
May you rest in peace,General. To the family of the General, thank you for sharing him with us and may your memories sustain you through this difficult time. God's blessings on you and your family. My father was a WW2 vet and was very proud of every veteran who served and was impressed by the General's way of making sure the grunts got credit for what happened.
RIP General. I am proud to have served under you in 2/2 Cav. You took us into the heart of the desert, and back out. Your brilliant leadership brought this (then) young corporal home.
A true warrior and commander, you have a place at Valhalla and Fiddlers Green. You have earned your rest, troop.
GOD BLESS A TRUE AMERICAN MAY YOUR MEMORIES HOLD YOU THROUGH THIS SAD TIME
He was my hero. I enjoyed reading his autobiography many years ago, and respected him not only for the service he did for our country, but as the truly honorable person he was. RIP General
I served under your command during Desert Shield and Desert Storm and will proudly serve under you again one day
I was very saddened to learn of The Bear's passing. Please accept my deepest sympathy for the loss of your husband, father and grandfather. I was a corporal in Co. B, 3/39th Inf. when he assumed comand of 1st brigade at Ft. Lewis (76'). He was a true warrior in every sense of the characteristics that embodies! He led by example & it wasn't beneath him to get in the wrestling pit, at times, with the troops during PT. Until we cross paths in the next dimension...HOORAH! "BAR-NONE" Sir. (RECONDO...1976)
Rest in Peace, Sir. I have read and will cherish your book. My thoughts and prayers go out to your family
RIP..GEN SCHWARZKOPF...I very much appreciate all you did with and for our troops during Desert Storm. My husband was a Navy Seabee over in Kuwait during that war. So as a military wife I myself salute you General...RIP!!!

its my opinion that General Schwarzkopf was the finest General officer and battlefield tactician that the world has ever seen. When I think of the Gulf War, Operation Desert Shield, Operation Desert Storm, and Provide Comfort.... I think of Gen. Schwarzkopf as the leader... rest in peace General.
I had the Honor of taking my Dad, a WWII veteran to see "The General" and listen to him talk at UNI in Cedar Falls, Iowa on April 6,2002! General Schwarzkopf thanked my dad for serving our country! That simple gesture tells you so much about the man! I thank you General Schwarzkopf for serving our country! My sympathy to your family! May God Bless you all!

A true American hero. Rest in peace
General & may God comfort & protect
your loving family.
I worked with HNS when he was a brigade cdr. at Ft. Lewis WA, after I returned from the DMZ. His temper is often mentioned (I saw it in person) but he was also very funny and he really did care about the troops. In his book he tells how he told the troops he'd made general...that version was sanitized for civilian consumption - I was there and what really happened was a lot more fun!!
I will never forget you THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE may you rest in peace...
THANK YOU FOR BEING A HERO AND A GREAT AMERICAN I LOOK UP TOO!
I served in the Gulf with the 3rd Armored Cavalry Regiment. Thank you for your leadership and service to our country. Brave Rifles and farewell...
RIP to a true hero. When my daughter was 17 and working at Winn Dixie, he actually took the time to stop and thank her for developing his photos and thanked her. To this day, she is 32 years old, she remembers the gentleman and soldier who took the time to speak to her and of her grandfather Allen E Capps who served 25 years in the Army. He touched many lives. Thank you Sir.
And the loss of another of America's true heroes, in the same caliber as Major Dick Winters of WW II. He was one of the men I admired most other than my own father.
god has called another hero home.god bless
I serves and worked with the General in Alaska. He was a great man and a great leader.
I admired you like no other, General. You were a true hero. You made me proud to be an American again. God rest Your soul.
This man was a true example of a REAL hero...They don't make Generals like this anymore...Sympathy to all his family and all that knew him. God Bless America!!
All I can say as a proud American is Thank You General - you did your nation proud - RIP
A true American hero. We mourn the loss of General Schwarzkopf and pray that his family will know how grateful we are for his service to our country.

To the General's Family -
Thanks for sharing him
with America & the world.
My deepest sympathy to the Schwarzkopf family. "Stormin' Norman" was a General of Generals and I personally appreciate his leadership. The backbone he had was made of steel, unlike some of the rubber backbones we have in Washington D.C. They sure could have used a lesson or two from the General. Rest in Peace General Schwarzkopf, your mission on earth is complete. You will not be forgotten. God Bless You Always!!!
RIP you will be missed buy all of your Military families.
Offering my deepest condolences during this difficult time, I'm so very sorry for your loss, death is something we are never prepared for, but please find comfort in knowing God has promised He will do away with sickness, pain and death for His word is truth.
I was Gen Schwarzkopf's personal briefing officer for two years, including 10 months as his Air ops briefer in the Desert Storm war room. He was the finest officer I ever worked for. He expected you to have done your homework and not waste his time. He was honest to a fault, brilliant, devoted, and had a heart as big as he was. I can't believe he's gone. The nation has lost a remarkably gifted and dedicated leader of the old school...the kind who put service above self at ever critical juncture. Please publish the details of his burial. Many, many of us will be there. May God bless Brenda and his children.
You and my father looked a lot alike. I came to your first book signing. I lived in Tampa at the time. When your father was a diplomat and you were a teen or pre-teen, you went overseas on the ship Pvt. Elden H. Johnson. When my father got transferred to Spain, we went on the same ship. We boarded 12/24/1956. I have always had the greatest respect for you. Your family is in my prayers.
RIP...Thank you for your stellar service to our country.
Our thoughts with the family.We've lost a good man and a great military leader.Airborne salutes him.
God bless the family. General Schwarzkopf was a real hero.
Thank you for your service in defending our country. No one should forget what you did for our country. Thank you for your service. I would like to thank all our veterans for serving. May God bless you and all our veterans. May you rest in peace.
