Fact of the Day: Ultimate General

One of the highest ranks in the U.S. Army is the Five-Star General. However the last time anyone got it was during World War II. Only nine people ever received the honor, the last being Omar Bradley who served in World War II and the Korean War.

That's a long time ago. I'm guessing it's hard to achieve?
