A statue honoring Gen. Omar Bradley stands on the eastern edge of Rothwell Park. Bradley was born in Clark, Missouri, on Feb. 12, 1893, and became an incredibly successful general in the U.S. Army. He attended Moberly High School and was a star player for the school’s baseball team. His military career led him to command the 12th U.S. Army Group in World War II, the largest group of U.S. soldiers ever to serve under a single field commander. Bradley commanded soldiers in North Africa, Sicily, Germany and on the beaches of Normandy, France. In 1950 he was promoted to become a five-star general and served as chairman of the joint chiefs of staff.
