    Rest in peace Sir, and may God have mercy on your soul.

    My prayers go out to his family and friends. Truly a great warrior. Few and far between.

    RIP.
    You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, "I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along." . . . You must do the thing you think you cannot do. Eleanor Roosevelt

    Don't forget Desert Storm!

    I remember my dad taped a Nova special or something about him Desert Storm etc and we watched it till it was literally falling apart.

    When he said something about kicking ***, you'd better believe it! None of the Generals we've had since I can even remember.

    He had Saddam dead to rights back then and was called off of him...

    RIP good sir...

    R I P The tree of Liberty is a little weaker with the passing of another patriot. Godspeed Sir.
    The situation will NEVER BE THE WAY YOU WANT, it WILL BE THE WAY IT IS. You must be FLEXIBLE ENOUGH TO ADAPT and just "DEAL WITH IT".
