Gen. Norman Schwarzkopf is being laid to rest at West Point.
A memorial service for the Desert Storm commander famously nicknamed "Stormin' Norman" will be held at the U.S. Military Academy's chapel Thursday afternoon. His remains will be buried afterward at West Point's cemetery.
Schwarzkopf commanded the U.S.-led international coalition that drove Saddam Hussein's forces out of Kuwait in 1991. He was 78 when he died in Tampa on Dec. 27 of complications from pneumonia.
Schwarzkopf graduated West Point in 1956 and later served two tours in Vietnam.
Schwarzkopf will be buried near his father, Col. H. Norman Schwarzkopf, the founder and commander of the New Jersey State Police.
