EDGEWATER -- Desert Storm veteran Jason Davis was saddened by the breaking news out of Washington, D.C., that 78-year-old retired Gen. H. Norman Schwarzkopf, who commanded the US-led international coalition forces into driving Saddam Hussein's army out of Kuwait in 1991, has died.
"He was a very powerful and great leader," said Davis, who officially takes office Tuesday as chair of Volusia County government.
