Is Brig. Gen. (Ret.) Chuck Yeager, he is such a bad ass dude, i mean classic case of right place at the right time for him to pop the sound barrier, but he did so much else in is career, what a awsome dude, my all time personal hero. I wish like hell i could have been a pilot just because of him. I have his auto biography, man he was just a bad ass dude, i really, really wish i could get him to sign it before he passes away, kinda hard from OK though i recommend that book to anyone, really inspirational. who is/are your hero's?
