Do you remember where you were when the Persian Gulf War started? I do. It was 1990, I was eleven years old and on the phone with my friend Annelise. Weird what I have chosen to remember, because the only thing I really remember about that war was General Schwarzkopf.
I remember watching about him on television and reading stories about him. I'm not sure I understood the war, but I liked Norman Schwarzkopf.
Imagine my surprise when I attended a West Point Ball in 1999 and there he was. My war hero. I remember trembling as I went to shake his hand. And then it was over.
But I got to meet Norman. :)
