Nuts

During World War Two, when  General Anthony McAuliffe, an Irish-American Catholic from Arlington Virginia, (He was born in DC)  was surrounded at Bastogne by the German army, they demanded his surrender. Although out gunned, out manned and low on supplies, McAuliffe's reply was "Nuts". He held out and was eventually relieved by Allied forces. He  retired to his home in Chevy Chase in 1964 and is buried at Arlington.
