The West Point Class of 1915 is known as ‘The Class the Stars Fell On’ because of graduates like Omar Bradley and Dwight Eisenhower. But the Class of 1976 - which graduated from West Point at the lowest point in the history of the modern US Army - is coming into a stellar reputation all their own . . . Wall Street Journal

David William Barno: Retired top commander in Afghanistan

Frank Gunther Helmick: Leading U.S. efforts to train Iraqi troops

Stanley Allen McChrystal: Top Officer in Afghanistan

Raymond Thomas Odierno: Top officer in Iraq

David Mitchell Rodriguez: Deputy in command in Afghanistan



  1. SL -- Would appreciate you comment on this: Adm. Mike Mullen does not rule out US shooting Israeli jets enroute to bomb Iran. (

  2. I served in B Company, 1st Battalion, 52nd Infantry (Mechanized) in Bamberg, West Germany from 1981-1983. LTGEN Rodriguez was a young Captain and my company commander. He was a good officer and I wondered than how far he would go.

  3. Owatermelon is on the same page as Jimmuh. He won't/can't make a decision. The IDF will have to refuel themselves over whatever areas they deem necessary.
    It will be the downfall of US diplomacy if we don't help them, but thats the way the Dims roll.

  4. ..not to mention the Reservists GOs from that class.... (oh wait, you didn't mention them)


  5. Many thanks for making the effort to discuss this, I feel strongly about this and like studying a great deal more on this topic. If possible, as you gain knowledge, would you mind updating your webpage with a great deal more information? It's very helpful for me.
