Topic - Norman Schwarzkopf
In the buildup to the 1991 Persian Gulf War, the U.S. Air Force did not send the A-10 "Warthog" because Air Force leadership did not want it to compete with new fighter aircraft planned for procurement ("Endangered species: 'Warthog' faces extinction as Air Force eyes Pacific," Web, Dec. 15). The "Warthog" was only deployed after theater commander Gen. Norman Schwarzkopf demanded (using some rather profane language) that it be deployed immediately. It was.
Gen. Norman Schwarzkopf with the no-nonsense nickname "Stormin' Norman" will be buried at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, next to his father, following a Thursday memorial service.
The recently departed Gen. Norman Schwarzkopf reportedly once said of our French allies: "Going to war without France is like going deer hunting without your accordion."
