They make em' there just very rare! they built a bronze memorial I watch a documentary on in France of Walter (not sure if he ever made it out to see it).

If nobody watch the *censored* storm this 25 year old red neck kid went through named Dakota Meyer from the great state of Kentucky then its worth a peek... 25 years old and this dude saved like 30 lives and dragged out his dead fellow Marines at 25 he was the lead and spear head just like Walter. The man stepped up when all around him was falling down, including officers, air support, communications, etc. and he went ballistic on the battlefield to organize, plan and lead men twice his age into fighting what was seemingly a lost cause... Walter would have been proud!

Thanx for putting this up,Sam.....We never know just who we're standing next to. We never know just who's inside of us. Sgt Ehlers was that kind of Guy...Humble...It was hard on him when he found out that the Landing Craft his Brother was in was zero'd out by a direct hit from a Mortar. I remember a Special on the Military Channel,the Sargeant and his Grandson were back at Normandy,on Sacred Ground.....Stand Down And Rest Easy,Sargeant Ehlers.. :angel:
