My uncle went in with the first wave of Marines. He was a Chief Medical Corpsman, and he carried as many weapons as medical supplies. In 15 days, he received every decoration the Marines and Navy could give, including the Navy Cross, and he was awarded a battlefield commission as an O-3.

He came back a paraplegic, and spent 18 months in Walter Reed; then, he came home, and became the Director of Civilian Defense of his County, as well as a successful business man.

His decorations reside on the wall, in my living room. I look at them EVERY day, to remind myself how lucky we were to have that "Greatest Generation".
