      Anthony Clement McAuliffe - General, United States Army

      Born in Washington, D.C. on July 2, 1898, he was a student at West Virginia University, 1916-17 and graduated from West Point in November, 1918. He advanced through the grades from Second Lieutenant in 1918 to General in 1955.

      He was Commander of Division Artillery of the 101st Airborne Division when he parachuted into Normandy on D-Day and when he entered Holland by glider, 1944. In December, 1944, due to the absence of General Maxwell D. Taylor, he was acting Commander of the 101st Airborne Division and other attached troops during the siege of Bastogne, Belgium. When they became surrounded and the Germans demanded their surrender, he sent back a one-word reply "NUTS." This is probably the most famous quote of World War II.

      • Some people ask the secret of our long marriage. We take time to go to a restaurant two times a week. A little candlelight, dinner, soft music and dancing. She goes Tuesdays, I go Fridays.
