My late father was awarded the distinguished flying cross for his actions to save fellow aviators in his squadron during the Korean War, I will have a cold beer and toast to him and all service men and women who sacrifice so we can enjoy the freedom we all enjoy. True balls adventure to fly these things off rolling seas in war time.

Awesome. Was just reading about the Battle of the Bulge again. My uncle was in the 10th Armored Div, part of Patton's 3rd Army, at the southern part of the bulge.
Our guys were pretty impressive. Great Patton quote "Better to fight for something than to live for nothing..."
Have a great weekend everyone.

My grandfather was a captian in the marines. He fought in Guadalcanal, Tarawa and Saipan. The stories he told me would blow your mind.
Thanks to all who gave all.

Great idea for a thread.

My father in law Stan Kras is staying with us this weekend. 97 years young and part of the greatest generation.
Battle of Guadalcanal
Private First Class Stanley J. Kras, United States Army, was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross for extraordinary heroism in connection with military operations against an armed enemy while serving with the 132d Infantry Regiment, Americal Division, in action against enemy forces on 2 January 1943. Private First Class Kras' intrepid actions, personal bravery and zealous devotion to duty exemplify the highest traditions of the military forces of the United States and reflect great credit upon himself, the Americal Division, and the United States Army.
