Army panel backs WWII veteran, Garlin Murl Conner, posthumous bid for Medal of Honor

B-17 Flying Fortresses in Flight

Those who know me know that I am an insatiable student of World War 2 history. Each time I come across another story of unbelievable selflessness, love for comrades and our country, and exceptional bravery, it reinforces my belief that the Citizen Soldiers of the United States who served during World War 2 are the finest our country will ever offer. We will never have another generation like this in our history, no matter how long the United States is around.

Here is another example of amazing selflessness that is finally, probably, going to be recognized. It’s just too bad that he wasn’t around to see it. Although, like most of these veterans, I doubt he would have wanted the accolades.
