5-star generals?


Now that the fighting in the Persian Gulf is over, there has been talk about rewarding Gens. Colin Powell and H. Norman Schwarzkopf with five-star rank. The last general to receive such an honor was Omar Bradley 40 years ago.

Including Powell and Schwarzkopf, there are now 12 four-star generals in the Army, but the military regards the fifth star as something to be bestowed in only extraordinary circumstances.
