That man was an Icon.

He executed perhaps the greatest battle plan in history.

RIP.

There are people here much more in tune than I am to military things, but I see him as the last of the badass American generals. RIP.

That man had class.

He was 78, didn't think he was that old. He was one of the good ones. Not an egomaniac, careful with his troops, cared about the men. History will look kindly on him.

A Bear of a man.

Wow that sucks, seem like JUST yesterday he was barrelchested STORMIN NORMAN.

He was a very smart and well traveled man, for a better glimpse of the man, read Woodwards "The Commanders"... he was the kind of guy who is VERY easy for me to admire... born into privelege, but sought to earn it every day of his life.

Cant believe we're just now hearing of him being ill.

RIP General

I remember a reporter asking him about the French after they condemned us for going into Iraq. He had the perfect response.

I remember them getting (deservedly so) universally bashed over that, but somehow I missed that. The amount of things I remember isn't what it used to be, but I wouldn't have forgotten that. **** France.
