    Please, GEN Schwarzkopf’s first name was Norman. He was far from “Normal” and extrordinary human being and outstanding leader of character and integrity.

    I apologize. It looks like I made a typo when writing the post. General Schwarzkopf’s name should be corrected now. Thanks for letting us know.
