My all time favorite U.S. General ahead of Patton (who had some flaws) and one of my favorite Presidents (and I don’t give a damn what they say about the corruption (which is NOTHING compared to what we have now).

What a MAN. What an inspiration. I can truly relate to him.

In 2004 I made a PILGRIMAGE to his tomb in New York. What a beautiful monument in a magnificent setting. I need to go back again.

I paid the ULTIMATE HONOR that I bestow on my heroes. I named a Golden after him. My Ulysses.

Grant’s tomb — which is NOT empty.

The OTHER Ulysses who like his namesake was one impressive piece of work. 2001 to 2013. Taken in 2013 when he was fully 12-years old. Very fit dog.
