Someone EMailed me an OpEd by Executive Editor David M Shribman, of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, titled "50 years later, MacArthur's farewell to arms continues to inspire". And, he is correct. Douglas MacArthur, notwithstanding his being well and properly fired by President Harry S Truman, during the Korean War, has a lot to say to us and this OpEd covers an important part of it..
MacArthur's Farewell Speech to the Corps of Cadets at West Point, given 12 March 1962, is still inspiring, at least to me.
