My Dad the Hero

My father pulled the gunner out of the burning B-52 that day. It was supposed to be an Airmen's Medal, but it was down graded due to his low rank.

He retired a CMSgt in 1998. A true cold war warrior.

Screw the politics, that gunner's family owes your father like no one's business, and I'm sure he never regretted not getting a bigger medal.

Sad state of politics. Downgrade a medal based upon rank, not the actual action that it was awarded for. Dipshits!

 

S! to the Chief!

It never bothered dad at all. It kind of chagrined him actually because me made sure none of his troops ever fell victim to that kind of BS.
