4. If that doesn't get everybody, then there's something ...

wrong with them.

He had to salute with his left hand, because he was stitched by machine gun fire in 1945 near Bologna, Italy.

10. I believe

it was an artillery shell and shrapnel, he still managed to drag his wounded RO to safety before he fell and laid on the field of battle for hours waiting for medics to be able to get him and take him for treatment....

An amazing life story as much as President Bush, two men shaped by a war against two enemies each man facing a different one of those enemies and each man suffering loss in that conflict.

Both men remind us of what the greatest generation was made of, fighting opponents who initially had better gear and were first world opponents.

Had we lost that war this world would be a darker, uglier place today.

15. The Medical contingents* of 10th Mountain rigged a simple cable car type system to transport

wounded down the slopes quicker than on mules.

* (along with the division Engineer bn)

they also had surgeons right behind the assault platoons to immediately stabilize the wounded for the trip to the main aid stations down below

My Moms uncle was the Bn Surgeon of the 85th mountain infantry regiment then.
Major Edward Carlton Dyer MC 0436424 Originally from Brookline Mass.

one of his other surgeons in 2nd bn- CAPT Levitan became MIA on 22 Feb 45 and after the war ended they got news from Camp Lucky Strike on May 19th 1945 that he was being repatriated. He took a wrong path on Mt Belvedere and was captured by Gebirgsj├Ągers who did not execute the Jewish Surgeon but kept him as their doctor for a few days then sent him to a POW camp

9. So this was alerted on

Under "No racist, sexist, anti-Semitic, anti-gay, or other bigoted hate speech. Do not spread hate based on race, sex, religion, sexual orientation or the like."

Though you're the prize fool for a reply like this, how the fuck that comment is hate speech is ponderous.
