I have known a few bad ass soldiers in my time- and even met 11 gents from WWII on their way to the White House to be awarded THE medal-and I knew of one Special Forces Sgt that had a VC that threw a grenade at a patrol, who grabbed the VC and threw HIM onto the grenade- but this gent......

When I went into the service in 1967, one of our infantry platoon sgt's was a guy whose name was Sgt. Brown. Of coarse,we called him 'bugger' but not to his face.

His decorations put generals to shame.(airborne w/3 stars) He had been to VN on 2 tours when I met him.

He was 5'6" and the toughest man I ever saw.He lived to fight the enemy.

I also want to mention my dad and dad in law.My wife is a genealogist and we found out both were at the invasion of Okinawa.

Both in the navy,fil was radar man on ship, and dad was a navy 'medic' He hauled ammo,food,water to the line and brought back the dead and wounded.

They are both almost gone.

Much respect to those warriors.

They probably didn't want to embarass the other chaps on the list.
