Fort Carson: Can a Gen. Patton be transparent?

FORT CARSON — When one thinks of military leaders, an image of Gen. George S. Patton might come to mind. It does for me: A tough, no-nonsense, gruff leader.

When I went to Fort Carson U.S. Army post this afternoon, I expected two things: 1. That their head honcho would be like Patton, and 2. That I would get nowhere near meeting him.

I was wrong on both accounts.
