The man was in fine form over the weekend.
Truly a great American and we were very happy to have him here for a few days. Sharp as a tack is the General!

I have to tell you, on behalf of we who live Downunder, how much we admire and respect this man. He truly represents the finest generation. He is a credit to your Country.
In difficult times such as these, it is important to reflect on the efforts and accomplishments of men such as this.
