Re: Sergeant Erwin & the Blazing Bomb
@geds, I couldn't find this story online anywhere, save the original page images from readers digest in the archives of the University of Alabama. I was looking for some things to post for Memorial Day, and I remembered this story from listening to Gov. Palin's book. It hasn't mattered how many times I've replayed that book, the passage of this story has been moving. I wanted to share it online, and was surprised to be unable to find it anywhere, so I retyped it from those original page images. It needs to be read and seen, heard by all. It is so important that what has been spent to keep this country free never be forgotten. Please pass it along to one and all.
God bless, and have a good day!
A veteran - whether active duty, retired, National Guard or Reserve - is someone who, at one point in his or her life, wrote a blank check made payable to "The United States of America" for an amount of "up to and including my life." That is honor, and there are way too many people in this country who no longer understand that - Author unknown
