A man of honor!

Off The Base

He made Tampa his final home, now West Point is his final resting place.

On February 28, 2013, a memorial service for General H. Norman Schwarzkopf was held at the Cadet Chapel.

Schwarzkopf, a U.S. Military Academy Class of 1956 graduate, was best known for his leadership during Desert Storm. Afterward, he quietly retired in Tampa, home to U.S. Central Command at MacDill Air Force Base. He was buried next to his father, a 1917 USMA graduate and cavalry officer, a World War I veteran and founder of the New Jersey State Police.

You can read full coverage of the memorial ceremony by U.S. Central Command:

Twenty-two years to the day when Operation Desert Storm ended, the general who commanded that allied ground offensive was laid to rest at West Point, N.Y.
