•    Born:  11 November 1885 •    Birthplace:  San Gabriel, California •    Died:  21 December 1945 (automobile crash) •    Best Known As:  Commander of the U.S. Third Army in World War II "Be willing to make decisions. That's the most important quality in a good leader."  "No bastard ever won a war by dying for his country.  He won it by making the other poor dumb bastard die for his country." “It is absurd to believe that soldiers who cannot be made to wear the proper uniform can be  induced to move forward in battle. Officers who fail to perform their duty by correcting small  violations and in enforcing proper conduct are incapable of leading.” "I dont give a damn about the color of your skin,  just kill as many sons of bitches wearing green as you can." "You must do your damdest and win." "We want to get the hell over there. The quicker we clean up this Goddamned mess, the quicker we  can take a little jaunt against the purple pissing Japs and clean out their nest, too. Before the  Goddamned Marines get all of the credit." "Magnificent! Compared to war all other forms of human endeavor shrink to insignificance.  God help me, I do love it so!" "It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men  lived." “May God have mercy upon my enemies, because I won't.” "I don't give a damn who the man is. He can be a nigger or a Jew, but if he has the stuff and does his duty, he can have anything I've got. By God! I love him.” Background and Education Military Career - Wars involved in - Where He was stationed. Trait Theory:
