In theory, that general would have been Patton. In practice, he usually carried something bigger but he was certainly willing to do his part. Of course, he was a lot younger then me.

Generals still carry pistols, you know, though I doubt many expect to use them in combat. Just the same, I was a member of the division in the army that last lost a general to the enemy.

Any guesses who and where?
