Medal of Honor Monday: Robert E. Femoyer


"For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty near Merseburg, Germany, on 2 November 1944.  While on a mission, the bomber, of which 2d Lt. Femoyer was the navigator, was struck by 3 enemy antiaircraft shells.  The plane suffered serious damage and 2d Lt. Femoyer was severely wounded in the side and back by shell fragments which penetrated his body.  In spite of extreme pain and great loss of blood he refused an offered injection of morphine.  He was determined to keep his mental faculties clear in order that he might direct his plane out of danger and so save his comrades.   Not being able to arise from the floor, he asked to be propped up in order to enable him to see his charts and instruments.  He successfully directed the navigation of his lone bomber for 2 1/2 hours so well it avoided enemy flak and returned to the field without further damage.  Only when the plane had arrived in the safe area over the English Channel did he feel that he had accomplished his objective; then, and only then, he permitted an injection of a sedative.  He died shortly after being removed from the plane.  The heroism and self-sacrifice of 2d Lt. Femoyer are in keeping with the highest traditions of the U.S. Army."

From 2nd Lt. Femoyer's Medal of Honor citation, awarded on May 9, 1945.

Medal of Honor Monday: John P. Fardy


"For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty as a Squad Leader, serving with Company C, First Battalion, First Marines, First Marine Division, in action against enemy Japanese forces on Okinawa Shima in the Ryukyu Islands, 7 May 1945.  When his squad was suddenly assailed by extremely heavy small-arms fire from the front during a determined advance against strongly fortified, fiercely defended Japanese positions, Corporal Fardy temporarily deployed his men along a near-by drainage ditch.  Shortly thereafter, an enemy grenade fell among the Marines in the ditch.  Instantly throwing himself upon the deadly missile, Corporal Fardy absorbed the exploding blast in his own body, thereby protecting his comrades from certain and perhaps fatal injuries.  Concerned solely for the welfare of his men, he willingly relinquished his own hope of survival that his fellow Marines might live to carry on the fight against a fanatic enemy.  A stouthearted leader and indomitable fighter, Corporal Fardy, by his prompt decision and resolute spirit of self-sacrifice in the face of certain death, had rendered valiant service, and his conduct throughout reflects the highest credit upon himself and the United States Naval Service.  He gallantly gave his life for his country."

From Cpl. Fardy's Medal of Honor citation, awarded on September 15, 1946.

May you find peace,

"The Legion of No Return" aka "Bridge Over the Elba"

A band of American are recruited to head deep into enemy lines and neutralize a pivotal bridge held by the Germans.  Can this rag-tag group of GIs succeed or will the war continue on because of their failure?!  This is another Dirty Dozen-esq Italian/Spanish turd so its about what you expect.  Not much unique to it and if ya missed it it wouldn't be a big loss.  Couldn't find a trailer for it so do a search on your Roku or some Google-Fu and you just might find this turd.

Not a big loss if ya missed it,
Brian
