Some inspirations are forever. One of those silent inspirations for me has been the stalwart image of "Iron Mike" who currently stands at the entrance to the National Infantry Museum in Columbus, GA. The image of "Iron Mike" has been with me since 1975 when I first laid eyes on him while attending Airborne (parachute) training at Ft Benning, GA. The "Iron Mike" statue stands as an icon for all infantryman, past and present, who have carried arms in the US Army.
