The look of that missing arm made me think it was. Only general who I know to have lost an arm, and remained a general after the war. Too bad no one showed him how to use a razor. Should have belonged to Dollar Shave Club.

Wait a second.... Maybe it's some other white-bearded one armed man. He probably snuck into Howard's office and put his uniform on.
Nice bookshelf, BTW.

I shave with a straight razor, and I can assure you that I'd grow a beard to if I had to use my left hand.
