Dr. Albert Einstein
Genius. Absent-minded professor. The father of relativity. Albert Einstein was all these and more. Time magazine's "Man of the Century" is a worthy recognition for one of the all time great scientists. Simple in his philosophy and ideas, yet thorough in his persuit of understanding the world around him. Who else but the commedian Einstein, when asked by a five-year old boy if he had gone to the bathroom today, would respond, "I'm glad to have someone ask me a question I can answer."
For his logic, reasoning, and humor - a hero.
Gen. George S. Patton, Jr.
A triumphant master of war, mobility, and speed, Patton was a general as well-known by his enemies as by his fellow soldiers. Brash and bold in war, he was equally ill at ease in political settings. A relentless officer who at times was reprimanded for advancing against orders, Patton displayed an undying belief in personal responsibility and honor. His most effecive weapon was not the armored tank but the individual soldier who was trained to be completely fearless. In truth, as Gen. Patton often said, "Every American soldier is a four-star army."
For his leadership, motivation, and respect - a hero.
