    I wonder if they're going to stop loss him! 1,000 yards is seriously impressive.

    Now that is impressive. 5 inches at 1000 yards. I wish I could do that at 500 yards. Good for him !

    That's an incredibly touching story.

    That's so cool that they awarded him with a replica 03A4.

    Looks like they re-ran it and news outlets like UK's Daily Mail picked it up and ran with it. Must be a slow news day. I don't think last February was even the first air-date.

    I think the World War II generation was called the Greatest Generation. If not, that's what I would call them. I cherish the ones we have left because they are sadly disappearing quickly.
