Military Personnel
    (March 26, 1914-July 18, 2005)
    Graduated from West Point (1936)
    Served in the North Africa and Sicily campaigns in World War II
    Commanded 187th Airborne Infantry Reg Combat Team in the Korean War
    Commanded US troops and advised South Korean troops during the Vietnam
    War (1964-1968)
    Appointed Chief of Staff of the U.S. Army (1968-1972)
    Retired from service (1972)
    He was the chief general during the infamous Vietnam War.
    He was instrumental in raising the forces of U.S. troops deployed during the beginning stages of the war.
    He was called 'waste more land' by angry hippies, partially referring to his strategy of a 'war of attrition.'
    Though obviously a failure, he continued after his removal from his post to maintain that the U.S. policy in Vietnam had been the right one.
    He ran unsuccessfully for the Republican nomination for governor of South Carolina (1974).
    His middle name is 'Childs.'
    He became a major general when he was only forty-two.
    He's been decorated by sixteen foreign countries.
    He was removed from his post by LBJ after the Tet Offensive, even though he really did nothing wrong and had managed to regain most of the lost ground at a huge cost to the enemy.
    Unlike most senior officers who served during the war, he appeared in public gatherings with many Vietnam veterans and has for the most part been warmly received.
