I don't know of another journalist that has as much of a voice in explaining the sacrifice of the military to the people at home.

Meanwhile Bill Maudlin's Willie & Joe drawings told the story of GI's in Europe with sad humor.

Back when journalists were not only patriots but also decent humans. He was tops and honorable, now we have socialist train monkeys and scum calling themselves journalists when in truth they merely push socialism under the guise of journalism!
I despise about 90% of the current socialist in hiding bastards myself...Tyr

You are SO freakin fired, It's "Ready .. TO". As in come to. Ready is the preparatory command and to is the command of execution. Damned squids. All y'all do is f*ck shit up. :laugh: Now if you were a jarhead the command would be "Present .. ARMS" . Then Ready ... TO.

And, you're older than dirt more than me. Ernie Pyle was my grandfather's time. Grandpa. :poke:

It's too bad he died in the last battle of the Pacific. It's got to suck to make it all the way through the war and get killed on some nobody cares island off Oki. And he had more balls than me. You're going to send me into combat armed with a camera? I don't think so, Tim.

I do get your point, but I couldn't resist :poke: at you. :laugh2: :salute: for Ernie.
