In Response To: Re: A Cautionary Tale! Gen. Almond's exit ()
Hi Bennie: My assumption was mistaken. Almond was indeed, rewarded for his lack of leadership in the face of one of the galling defeats in the history of U.S. Forces; to wit an Army was made to "advance to the Rear" or as Gen. Smith of the 1st Marine Div., states it; "We are attacking in another direction".
