Sorry to read of the man's passing. Soon the last USA WW2 COMBAT VET will pass on.
Ike was a great general and a great American.
He came and went before the massive leftist corruption took hold in this "soon to be destroyed nation" mushroomed!
That reality is a real bitch but either way ,even if civil war break outs this nation will never regain its place. A rotten fruit does not ever regain its former glory.. -Tyr
