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,
