General Schwarzkopf: “The Bear” Dies

Posted by on December 28, 2012 in News

“Stormin’ Norman”was a name the media gave him; but, Gen. H. Norman Schwarzkopf didn’t care much for that moniker. He preferred what his troops called him, “The Bear.”

He was the charismatic, yet personally humble, leader of our troops in the Gulf War. They trusted him. And they knew that the “Bear” had their backs. 

After his military career, like so many US veterans, he continued to serve. He refused to enter politics. But General Norman Schwarzkopf helped raise millions for children non-profits.

“I may have made my reputation as a general in the Army and I’m very proud of that,” he once told The Associated Press. “But I’ve always felt that I was more than one-dimensional. I’d like to think I’m a caring human being. … It’s nice to feel that you have a purpose.”

Schwarzkopf is survived by his wife, Brenda, and their three children: Cynthia, Jessica and Christian.

God bless Norman Schwarzkopf! He was a true American patriot. He is worthy of our honor and remembrance.

Sir, thank you, sir.

Hello, I'm Mark Baird and I founded Hire Patriots. My wife and I are 'helpers.' We are concerned about meeting the practical needs of our US veterans veterans and their families. We began a job board for local residents to post chores that they need help with. It has been very successful. Thousands of local US Military and veterans partially or entirely support themselves from our website. We are looking for others near US Military bases who would also like to have a HirePatriots.com website for their location. We also hold welcome home parties, military marriage retreats, job fairs and create military family gardens.
