Default General Norman Schwarzkopf has died.

"Stormin' Norman" Schwarzkopf commanded the U.S.-led international coalition in Desert Storm. He was 78.

WASHINGTON — A U.S. official says retired Gen. H. Norman Schwarzkopf, who commanded the U.S.-led international coalition that drove Saddam Hussein's forces out of Kuwait in 1991, has died. He was 78.

The official tells The Associated Press that Schwarzkopf died Thursday in Tampa, Fla. The official wasn't authorized to release the information publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.

A much-decorated combat soldier in Vietnam, Schwarzkopf was known popularly as "Stormin' Norman" for a notoriously explosive temper.

He lived in retirement in Tampa, where he had served in his last military assignment as commander-in-chief of U.S. Central Command. That is the headquarters responsible for U.S. military and security concerns in nearly 20 countries from the eastern Mediterranean and Africa to Pakistan.

Gen. Schwarzkopf is also a Vietnam veteran who was an "American advisor" to South Vietnamese Army Rangers. He will be missed by many! May rest in peace!

He was our last American military commander hero. He honorably drove a larger, invading army (Iraq's) out of a smaller sovereign country (Kuwait).

No offense to today's servicemen who are compelled by their commanders to invade and occupy smaller countries of course .
