      I’ve always admired General Patton, and so did the men who fought under him.
      He knew what he was doing. And his men knew that~!

      You’re welcome, CW.

      😀 Touche’, Capt~! Yet, at the end of the Bush era, regardless what you thought of him, we had MEN and LEADERS in our military.
      The Obomination promised “Fundamental Change”,,, and that’s what we got~!
