    Reading this thread reminded me of General George S. Patton. Did you know the room where he died Heidelberg Army Hospital is now an Army Ophthalmologist treatment room? I know because I was in there. They had right on the wall a plaque stating it.

    So sad, and the rumors about his death. They all were great Hero's and our Country can never show how grateful we are. Well maybe we can by taking our country back!
