hau ghostwarrior, I clicked on the link in your last post to see if there were any of my relations with that medal. There were not but this one did surprise me:
CO-RUX-TE-CHOD-ISH (Mad Bear)
Rank and organization: Sergeant, Pawnee Scouts, U.S. Army
Place and date: At Republican River, Kans., 8 July 1869
Date of issue: 24 August 1869
Citation: Ran out from the command in pursuit of a dismounted Indian; was shot down and badly wounded by a bullet from his own command.
He got a CMoH for being shot by his own command. Priceless!!!
our tribal brothers and sisters in the middle east have discovered for themselves the americans are weak cowards, liars, thieves and murderers who hide behind their armor and words and then crow about how brave they are when they get their red white and blue children shipped back to them in boxes by Indigenous Peoples and Nations around the earth.
america has not won a war since WW2. We had our ass handed to us in Korea, Vietnam even Grenada. If americans think that other countries did not notice how General Vo Nguyen Giap beat them in Vietnam they are sadly mistaken. american troops found one of Giap's books by the bedstead of Robert Mugabi in Somalia. A week later the US had 18 dead in the "Black Hawk Down" incident. The tribal brothers and sisters in the middle east have something else in common with the Vietnamese. The Vietnamese had fought the Chinese for 1,000 years. Then the French, the Japanese, the French again all before taking on the US. They didn't care if the war went on for another 1,000 years. Those in the middle east will easily hold a grudge for 1,000 years. Time is on their side and more and more flag draped coffins will come back home. Low tech trumps high tech in almost every instance.
