Another Great General passes... Anyone ever watch General Schwarzkopf's leadership speech at West Point after Desert Storm?

I always asserted that ODS could have been shortened to a few minutes if the General and Saddam were put in a ring together and duked it out. :wink:

One of the guys in my shop at MacDill went to the barber shop for a haircut, and almost fell out of the chair a few minutes later when Norm sat down next to him. Talked his ear off for about ten minutes about serving and other topics and shook his hand when he left. We need more men like Norm.
