Omar Bradley
b. 2-12-1893; Clark, Missouri (considered Moberly his hometown)
d. 4-8-1981

Omar Bradley was one of the main U.S. Army field commanders in North Africa and Europe during World War II, and a General of the Army in the United States.

Bradley, who was the son of a schoolteacher, and taught mathematics at his alma mater West Point between World War I and II, has the reputation of being “a polite and courteous man”. He was informally known as “the soldier's general” (Ernie Pyle) and “never known to issue an order to anybody of any rank without saying ‘Please’ first.”

FYI - Omar Bradley and WWI officer John J. Pershing, also once a teacher, were born in north central Missouri.

Omar Bradley quotes ~
• “We have men of science, too few men of God. We have grasped the mystery of the atom and rejected the Sermon on the Mount. The world has achieved brilliance without conscience. Ours is a world of nuclear giants and ethical infants. We know more about war than we know about peace, more about killing than we know about living. If we continue to develop our technology without wisdom or prudence, our servant may prove to be our executioner. ” ~ Statement (31 May 1948), quoted in An Inconvenient Truth : The Planetary Emergency Of Global Warming And What We Can Do About It (2006) by Al Gore
• “It is time that we steered by the stars, not by the lights of each passing ship.”
• “We are dealing with veterans, not procedures; with their problems, not ours.”
• “Wars can be prevented just as surely as they can be provoked, and we who fail to prevent them must share the guilt for the dead.” ~ quoted by Peace Pilgrim
