    True but we should also hold Generals responsible for disastrous decisions.

    General Patton wants us to remember the benefits of war, not the costs. I believe both should be weighed equally.

    Justin, what on earth does your comment have to do with the quote? How do you know what Patton wanted us to remember ? Thank God that we had men like George Patton are we could all be speaking German now.

    Those that have died while trying to keep the living free deserve the highest honors. It is a gift the living can not truly know whilst they still live.

    REALLY BAD quote. After all, the 2 (mourning & thanking) aren't mutually exclusive.

    It is interesting, this quote, in that is makes one think about what is being said here. The second sentence actually gives much respect to the first and it seems that is overlooked by some. I give it 5 stars.

    About Gen. George S. Patten I have a copy of "America's Steamroller", a story about a hero. One who GOD raised up "for such a time as this" . We need one such as him in the white house now. I am sure he is at home with his Saviour.

    A man of faith who read his Bible daily, knowing who he was, where he came from and where he was going and what he was going to do when he got there.Giving thanks to God and asking for guidance from God all the way. for freedoms sake.

    While an excellent General, George was capable of stupid statements like this. Sheesh! Go figure.
