Thanks John,

I knew he served under Scott, but I had no idea that Scott saying he was the best soldier he had ever seen in the field would have been enough to earn him the right to command such vital forces.  Could you imagine today if someone was given such a high rank just on the word of Gen. Peter Pace alone after serving relatively little in combat situations?  I guess times were just that different! :?

Thanks - Jessie
