My father fought in WWII under General Patton and
General Patch in the tank corps. He never talked about
the war or the dangers he faced. My dad was just happy
he could serve his country and return home safely.
There were plenty of humble soldiers in our army.
One of my Uncles was a mechanic in that unit. Maybe they knew each other. It was one of my Mom's brothers so he would have been a Boege.

Same here. My dad was in Col. Reed’s 2nd Cav under Patton. Joined after Normandy but saw lots including the pivot and race to Bastogne. Broke his wrist in Czechoslovakia and missed out on rescuing the Lipizzaners. He never once spoke about the horrors he must have seen but did make self-deprecating jokes about his service as a radioman. Patton is the only movie he ever took me to see.

I'm not sure what his beef is with the military but counties with military bases swung to Dems by 8 points, whereas the nation as a whole flipped just 2.

The Medal of Honor is our nation's highest combat valor award.
It is given to men and women who have demonstrated valor
and honor in our nation's military. Donald Trump is a egotist
who has never served in our nation's military and faced the
dangers of war. He is a disgrace to the human race.
