<p><a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_D._Lavelle" target="_blank">Rest easy General Lavelle.</a></p>

<p>Those ratbags Nixon and Kissinger left him to rot.  A good man.</p>

<p>The thing is that military men of that stature know that they may have to sacrifice themselves in order to keep the president untouchable, it's part of the job.  I'm sure Lavelle was well compensated for the sacrifice he made.  Although it's good to see that he was reinstated posthumously</p>

<p>According to what I've seen and read he wasn't compensated at all and died of a heart attack at an early age still scarred by it all.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>For all that Nixon said Gosh gee, I feel sad, he upheld the decision to cashier him.  And did so in public. </p>

<p>Nice that you Canadians are having a discussion about an American General.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Not that *I* know anything about the guy....</p>

<p>I do have a cousin that's a (retired) 3 star General...maybe I should ask his opinion on him....he probably knew him...He was really up there in the food chain, as it were.</p>

Yeah, well Americans don't know shit about their own country.  So we might as well let "foreigners" educate us a little.</p>

The rest of the world always thought it kind of weird that Americans didn't know shit about other countries, but if they also don't know shit about their own country it all kind of makes sense now. ;-)<br>
