    Tex and General Patton ...

    I do understand, very well. My dad was a Canadian Sgt. Major in WW2 ... and he also knew how to get his point across.

    He used to tell some rather upsetting to hear stories, that involved some of his soldiers (very young men) that were terrified of fighting.

    Enough! Some of the incidents would make you cry.
