One of the most honored and decorated naval commanders was lord Horatio Nelson. Many do not know that when he won his greatest victories, he was suffering from gout, malaria, chest pains, depression, a missing eye and a missing arm. He also suffered all of that time from seasickness. Some may say he chose the wrong line of work. Others might say he is an example of those who are willing to pay the price for a cause they believe in.
