Gen. William C. Westmoreland, known as "Westy" to a generation of Americans, had a striking presence. Erect, courteous, with silver hair and a jutting jaw, pugnacious yet modest, he was the picture of a soldier whether in uniform or out. And it is as a soldier that he will be remembered throughout this country, for his role as the general commanding U.S. forces in Vietnam from 1964 to 1968, and for his services afterward to veterans of that war. In his home state and city, and among his fellow veterans he will also be remembered for an uncomplaining nobility of spirit through great adversity, and a steadfast belief that victory in Vietnam had been this nation's for the taking...
