WWII Soldier?

That is an actor, Gary Cooper who was a playing a WWI hero. Alvin York, single handedly captured over a 100 Germans manning machine gun nests. Probably one of the greatest marksmen ever!

I've been to Alvin Yorks house. It's part of a national park now and his grandson is the park ranger there. Pretty cool. Plus a local museuma around here just got a german machine gun that he captured during the war.

That is one story that I love! A true hero, humble and honest.
From very poor country. Some folks just have what it takes.
Later guys, time to get ol' painless outta the bag.

The truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth!
