A Gerat Man Died Today

Recommended Posts

My Father a W.W.2 war Hero died this morning at 0532am I have and always will be so proud of my Father that is why I joined the marine Corps to be like him . In a concentraion camp my Father and his 6 man unit save 650 Jewish people from a gas chamber and got them to a Army medcail unit 67 miles away they left no one behind ! My Father was wounded and shipped out to A French Hospital where he demaned to be released and shipped back to his unit My Father has two purple hearts and the medal of honer he retired form the Marines in 1966 the year I was born . He severed for 34 years and retired as a Lt.Con U.S.M.C So if I am not around for awhile every knows why !

This will be the saddest day of my life !

My prayers are with you and your family. My Wife's step-grandma died last night. It is truly a sad day today.

 

Peace be with you!

You have our sympathy and understanding.

 

My Grandfather died four years ago. He served in combat against the Japanese in Burma in WWII. He later served in the US Army Air Corps as an officer in the Korean War.

 

As Patton said, we should not be sorry that they died, we should thank God that such men lived.
