Description War Hero. Omar Nelson Bradley (February 12, 1893 April 8, 1981) was a senior U.S. Army field commander in North Africa and Europe during World War II, and a General of the Army in the United States Army. From the Normandy landings through the end of the war in Europe, Bradley had command of all U.S. ground forces invading Germany from the west; he ultimately commanded forty-three divisions and 1.3 million men, the largest body of American soldiers ever to serve under a U.S. field commander.He was the last five-star commissioned officer of the United States (a rank historically held by only five men) and was the first general to be selected Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.Baseball player: While at the academy, Bradley's focus on sports prevented him from excelling academically. He was a baseball star, though, and often played on semi-pro teams for no remuneration (to ensure his eligibility to represent the academy). He was considered one of the most outstanding college players in the nation his junior and senior seasons at West Point, noted as both a power hitter and an outfielder with one of the best arms in his day.
Robert Dunkle Member Since April 2012 Artist Statement My passion is taking pictures. All through my youth and up to this point in my life pictures and the feeling and emotion they can bring forth has been a fascination. I travel a lot and prefer the back roads of our great country where images and memories of the past abound. Before my wife passed away we spent a lot of time photographing everything we saw. She was the flower photographer and I took shots of barns and old cars. My flower album is for her. Lilies and roses were her love and a great family story about rebirth and continuation centers around a rose. Enjoy these albums and feel free to leave a comment. I hope to generate a stream of revenue that can leave me more free time to spend with the family and doing what I was born to do. Being a Dad to my kids.
