The Commandant of the Marine Corps, General Conway, (Great guy) was recently asked about the random mortaring occuring in Iraq at various bases while giving a talk/speech.
Here's his answer:
Referring to the perimeter guards, Conway drew cheers by telling the questioning corporal that "those grunts are out there doing the best they can, son…. They would like some help if you would like to help them."
My admiration for the Commandant grows more each day, and each time I read a new article about him! They need to put him in charge of the whole war.
He really is a very impressive man, and has had a stunning carreer.
“The raw courage, the selflessness, the teamwork demonstrated by this young generation is absolutely unbelievable,” said Conway. “I would suggest that our services, our Corps and our nation are in great shape for a long time to come.”
Conway takes the helm as Marines continue to engage enemies on the frontlines of the Global War on Terrorism.
“This is going to take awhile,” he said of ongoing operations in Iraq. “With your support there is only one outcome, and that is victory.”
sounds like a great guy
Not just a great guy, his bio is AWESOME.
Everything I have heard about the man is impressive.
They all say he is the right man to lead the Corps.
