From his hospital bed at Methodist Hospital in Houston, former President George H. W. Bush released a statement regarding the death of retired General H. Norman Schwarzkopf.

"Barbara and I mourn the loss of a true American patriot and one of the great military leaders of his generation. A distinguished member of that Long Gray Line hailing from West Point, General Norm Schwarzkopf, to me, epitomized the 'duty, service, country' creed that has defended our freedom and seen this great Nation through our most trying international crises. More than that, he was a good and decent man, and a dear friend. Barbara and I send our condolences to his wife Brenda and his wonderful family."

General Norman Schwarzkopf, Dead at 78

Retired General Norman Schwarzkopf died on Thursday, at the age of seventy-eight, in Tampa, Florida.

Born in Trenton, New Jersey, August 22, 1934, H. Norman Schwarzkopf Jr. grew up to the army life. In 1956, he graduated from West Point and his first tour saw him in Berlin before the Wall was built. He then came back to the states and went to USC where he received his masters in mechanical engineering, graduating in 1964. Following that he taught at West Point, for one year, before applying to be sent to Vietnam, where he served, before coming back to teach two more years.

It was in Vietnam that his reputation to risk his own life for his soldiers came into place, it was also where he became known as Stormin Norman, due to his temper when other units refused to help his. Schwarzkopf rose through the ranks, serving in various locations and commands, until making full general in 1988.

As Commander in Chief of the US Central Command he designed a war game in which Iraq invaded Kuwait, and other nations, in order to take over oil fields, and how they should be defended. The games took place in July of 1990, less than a month before Iraq actually did invade Kuwait, for oil. He was put in charge of a coalition to removed Iraq from Kuwait. His plan was used and because of it, the US ground war only lasted four days.

Stormin Norman retired from the military in August of 1991, after which he became an analyst for NBC. After being diagnosed with prostate cancer, in 1993, he began promoting awareness of it. He continued to work with various charities, after beating cancer, and sat on multiple boards for high profile corporations.
