For what it was worth I always liked his portrayal of a military officer as being strong and thoughtful. It is one of the things I like about Stargate. It is often easy to show the military as full of buffons or warmongers while of course the heroes are exceptional. Stargate over the years has taken the effort to show that the career military ranks are filled with reasoned and disciplined folks who believe in serving their country. Mr. Davis did this very well in his portrayal of General Hammond for a number of years.

Tip a hat and lift a drink to the gentleman.
