I got a military history question. in this day and age of instant news and everything is available via , Why don't we have modern military personalities that stand out like we have in the past? in school, i learned about 20 year old Civil War colonels and generals, about soldiers who stood out from the rest. American Revolution, 1812, Spanish-American, WWI and WWII....but the numbers of outstanding personalities' numbers start to dwindle from Korean War on till today. Honestly, i have heard more about Pat Tillman's parents than the man himself. Sgt. York, Audie Murphy, McCain and Stockdale of Vietnam....but where are the modern historical figures? From the 80s till today, i don't know of any, really except for maybe Schwarzkopf. But i don't see him as being a standout, either. let me add, this isn't political. and please no answers that involve name calling. Just wondering if i am missing something or history hasn't spoken yet.
