Gen. Herbert Norman Schwarzkopf, Jr.Gen. Herbert Norman Schwarzkopf, Jr.U.S. Army
 78 years old from Tampa, Florida
August 22, 1934 – December 27, 2012

On December 27 we lost 4-Star General Norman Schwarzkopf. Younger people may not really know who he was, but those of us 30 and older will remember him during the Gulf War. And rather than try and condense his life and career into a small post, which is impossible by the way, I’ve found a couple of links that do a much better job telling the story of this hero.You can read more here and here

These brave men and women have given their lives so that others may enjoy the freedoms we get to enjoy everyday. For that, I am proud to call them Hero.

We Have Every Right To Dream Heroic Dreams.
Those Who Say That We’re In A Time When There Are No Heroes, They Just Don’t Know Where To Look
