Gen. Norman Schwarzkopf is probably best known for his leadership of Desert Storm. He sported two colorful nicknames. He didn’t like the most famous one, “Stormin’ Norman,” probably because it alluded to his volatile temper. But he seemed to have a fondness for his second, “The Bear,” an allusion to his 6ft., 4in. height and nearly 240-pound size.
In his autobiography, he described his wife as “Mrs. Bear” and he named one of his dogs “Bear” as well.We Are The Mighty2020-12-07T15:06:13-04:00
