Bernard Montgomery. Fought both world wars, born of Anglican Priest in England, cute when riding a tank, born November 17th, 1887, and died March 24th, 1976, at the age of 88. Oh... Huh... Just thinking about him and Helen Goff's times... It's interesting how history can run into history, even though those two historic things don't have anything to do with each other.
