    Francis Currey, one of the last surviving World War II Medal of Honor recipients, dies at 94
    The Week Catherine Garcia,The Week 8 hours ago

    Francis Currey, one of three living World War II Medal of Honor recipients, died on Tuesday, NEWS10 reports. He was 94.

    Currey, from Selkirk, New York, joined the U.S. Army at 17, and was a technical sergeant. He was in Belgium during the Battle of the Bulge, and because he wasn't given proper winter gear, was suffering from frostbite. On Dec. 21, 1944, German tanks approached Currey and his company while they were guarding a bridge crossing. A rifleman, Currey exposed himself to enemy fire as he shot and killed several Germans. During the intense fighting, he also used anti-tank grenades and a bazooka against the Germans, and was able to rescue five Americans who were taking fire inside a building.

    Currey received the Silver Star, Purple Heart, and Medal of Honor, the highest decoration of valor. In 1998, his likeness was used to create the Medal of Honor G.I. Joe.
    In this nation we should be honoring, admiring and celebrating true heroes like this great man, whereas instead we are giving great acclaim, admiration, adoration to idiots like the Kardashians, rap singers, liberal/dem/politicians and perverted sexual deviants!
    A very sad state of affairs and one that seems to be growing by leaps and bounds, IMHO.
    This man deserves to be truly honored instead of those maggots that I just listed, that by no decent standard ever should be..--Tyr

    I am so sorrowful to see the passing of that generation of service people.
    The risks and sacrifices they faced are hardly imaginable these days.
    I have lost my mind. If found, please give it a snack and return it?
