He will always be one of the true heroes of the Battlefield. Know matter where you look, and how far back, or foward, he had a passion for his job and was the best their ever was, if Alvin York was real Vaq, I bet Carlos would be in his category, and a lot more in Iwo-Jima, Battle of the Bulge, Pork chop hill, and so on. How did Rosevelt put it a day that will live in InFAMINY, Carlos should have had a movie for him and that would have told a story close to Alvin York's and where he was from. My dad did not like Audie Murphy, I never knew why really, but he must have been a tough son-of-a-bitch. Wonder why somebody never made a movie about Carlos ? JLC

Very real.
Hollywood might take some artistic liberties, but not so much back then.

Thankyou for the comment and like I said this will prove the little prk is wrong. I hate him anyway, the Cous, not Alvin my heroe, and wasn't he like Carlo's , but I know because it was Vietnam right.

vaq

Believe it or not, a cousin of mine said he was made up for an old movie, so I did not really know for sure, but growing up that was our favorite movie and story, and I always thought it was real. So F-you Cous I was right, and Vaq you just gave me the truth link to shut the little bastard up for once. Thankyou Vaq. John

So they really gave him the bottom land and all, the parade, I guess the whole thing, deserved it too. Now Carlos was from Tennesee right. JLC

Yep

The state bought it and gave it to him.
Parades and all.
The only thing I might question is the lightning blowing the shoes off of the mule.
Don't know where Carlos hailed from.

Yep, another fine example of American badassery.
