    Some hard MF'ers right there.

    Something I never adapted well to was playing GI in the winter, hard winters. I can roll in the heat, but at the first sign of snow, I turn into a rather large vagina.

    Douglas Albert Munro, MOH, Coast Guard
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Douglas_Albert_Munro
    For extraordinary heroism and conspicuous gallantry in action above and beyond the call of duty as Officer-in-Charge of a group of Higgins boats, engaged in the evacuation of a Battalion of Marines trapped by enemy Japanese forces at Point Cruz, Guadalcanal, on September 27, 1942. After making preliminary plans for the evacuation of nearly 500 beleaguered Marines, Munro, under constant risk of his life, daringly led five of his small craft toward the shore. As he closed the beach, he signaled the others to land, and then in order to draw the enemy's fire and protect the heavily loaded boats, he valiantly placed his craft with its two small guns as a shield between the beachhead and the Japanese. When the perilous task of evacuation was nearly completed, Munro was killed by enemy fire, but his crew, two of whom were wounded, carried on until the last boat had loaded and cleared the beach. By his outstanding leadership, expert planning, and dauntless devotion to duty, he and his courageous comrades undoubtedly saved the lives of many who otherwise would have perished. He gallantly gave up his life in defense of his country

    I think the average American would be absolutely astonished if they knew just some of the things that US military do on a daily basis. In peacetime. In secret.

    I used to look at some of these guys and think they were just normal guys, who, based on time and circumstances, had been placed in a situation to do incredible things. None were groomed from birth to be heroes, they were just like you and me. Could all of us have committed such heroic acts? Probably not, but it’s regular guys just like us, who become heroes by their actions.
