General Curtis LeMay


General Curtis LeMay (c. 1906-1990)

“I’d rather be active, doing almost any demanding interesting thing in the world, than participating in social activities.”

  • Gen. LeMay wrote this quote bemoaning the social responsibilities of his position as Chief of Staff of the United States Air Force in his autobiographical work, Mission with LeMay: My Story, by Curtis LeMay and MacKinlay Kantor (Doubleday & Company, 1965).
