Positive General Officer Stories
No doubt we would crash the servers at MTF retelling the negative Merrill or Doc stories. How about some positive stories about some General Officers. Try to only tell stories you personally witnessed or heard about from an eye/ear witness.
Here's my first one: Keesler circa 1999 -2001. Second AF CC to visit 81 TRW. We (Bryan Hall) were the first building he would visit and were directed to have NCOs stationed at all the doors he would walk through to open the door as he arrived. As he came to the first stairwell where one of my SSgts was posted he asked her what her job was. "Instructor, block xx" was her reply. To which the General said "Is there a class in session now?" After she replied yes, he politely said she can return to the classroom and teach the students. He then turned to the Captain (I think from the Gp or Wg) coordinating his visit and sternly said "I can open my own F'N doors". Cell phones went a flying as calls were made to the rest of the schoolhouses to pull the door monkeys.
