*REMEMBERING OUR VETERANS AND ACTIVE TROOPS ON THIS MEMORIAL DAY AND SALUTING ALL OUR MILITARY'S WITH HONOR AND GREAT RESPECT *

My Pa-Paw is my MILITARY VETERAN HERO * He served full time active Duty in World War ll in the ARMY from start to finish of this War * His PLATOON was stationed on the front lines in Germany under the direct orders of General PATTON * He HELD no Special Title, He was just one of the guy's in his Troop following orders and Fighting for our FREEDOM * Here is His Story that was Published in the Oklahoma City Daily Times in '1945 *

On a day that was not so pretty,Rain and the cold was taking its toll on Him and his Platoon FIGHTING on the front lines of Germany * They were in DIRE need of AMO and FOOD * Orders from General Patton came that morning that a Military Truck was being sent to them LOADED with AMO and FOOD *Waiting for the LIFE SAVING Truck to arrive they had to make sure to reserve the AMO and FOOD they had and because of this many were SHOT and some were KILLED * Most of their FOOD that they had , they all SHARED with STARVING CHILDREN Running and HIDING for cover among the MANY PILES of BODIES in the streets of Germany in front of Hitler's PALACE * These PILES of BODIES were Hitler's trail of INNOCENT JEWS SLAUGHTERED in GAS Housing and some were his OWN German Natives * The WAR was at its PEEK and HITLER'S THROWN was FALLING * As the truck arrived active RETALIATION was in progress and AMO was RUNNING OUT FAST * It was a matter of LIFE & DEATH * One of the German SNIPERS HIT the US Trooper driving the LIFE TRUCK and it ran into a pillar of Hitler's Palace * The driver was DEAD along with his Rider, And as they watched this happen, they took cover as they knew the truck would EXPLODE carrying ALL the AMO * BUT, By the GRACE OF GOD, it DID NOT * The truck was still running, the AMO & FOOD was still savable if they could just get to it * ALL the MEN in the Platoon looked at each other WAITING for ORDERS from General Patton on what to do next, In a split MOMENT, MY PA-PAW BROKE & RAN towards the truck * Every bit of AMO the Platoon had left was FIRING to cover my Pa-Paw as He attempted to SAVE His Platoon,the AMO & the FOOD that was needed to SAVE ALL their LIVES *
He reached the truck, drove it to Safety behind His Troops, without any injury at all and the AMO was used to bring HITLER DOWN * As General Patton arrived after all was cleared and said and done, the WAR WAS OVER * As General Patton led my Pa-Paw's Platoon out, walking down the streets of Germany for the LAST TIME, ALL the Troopers were still SHARING their FOOD RATIONS with the HOMELESS, STARVING, CHILDREN LEFT BEHIND ON THEIR OWN to LIVE and SURVIVE among the PILES of BODIES and RUINS from the trail of WAR left behind in the streets of Germany *

My Pa-Paw has told this Story ONLY a very few times to Family, ONLY * He doesn't like to talk about it much * And He DOES NOT LIKE TO BE CALLED A HERO * My mommy has the News Paper Clipping with His picture & Story and the SMALL Streamers OF RED,WHITE & BLUE RIBBON & a GOLD METAL of BRAVERY framed in a Special place on our wall * With TEARS in His eyes, My Pa-Paw says He's NOT A HERO, He says the MEN in His PLATOON are the HERO'S , They SAVED MY LIFE *

My Pa-Paw is 88 yrs. old and is still LIVING a GOOD HEALTHY LIFE * He still Farms & goes Fishing a lot, that's what He Lv's to do * He has ALWAYS said, ONLY by the GRACE OF GOD and BRAVE MILITARY SOLDIERS AM I ALIVE TODAY * When my GOOD LORD calls me to come Home, I will NOT go because I'm OLD * I will go because my HEART can't take the PAIN and SUFFERING of WARS ANYMORE *

*My Great-Great Uncle Served in the ARMY in the CIVIL WAR *
*My Great-Uncle Served in the Navy in World War ll *
*My Uncle Served in the Navy in World War ll *
*My mommy's Brother was Drafted for the VIETNAM WAR, but could not Serve because of his eye-sight *

*IN MEMORY OF ALL THE VETERANS FIGHTING FOR OUR FREEDOM & FREEDOM FOR OTHERS, THOSE VETERANS WHO SACRIFICED THEIR LIVES TO SAVE MY PA-PAW & UNCLE'S LIVES *ALL OUR VETERANS THAT HAVE SACRIFICED AND GAVE THEIR LIVES SO ALL OF US MAY HAVE OUR LIFE,OUR LIVES AND OUR FREEDOM TODAY *

" GOD BLESS AMERICA " !
" LAND OF THE FREE AND HOME OF THE BRAVE "!

MY HERO, MY PA-PAW, Sierra
