Doing better last I heard…Will check in with him later…
My sister whom is a writer of some sorts postedthis about Dad and his Korean War experiences of which he has related to me more often especially when while we are Deer Hunting.
I remember this one, story is he also received a battle field promotion and a commendation of some sort for manning the machine gun. Was either Heartbreak or Bloody Ridge..
The next day or the day after, I had taken over a machine gun, nobody was on it, I took it over on top of the ridge. We did not go into attack that day. In the afternoon, I looked over to my left and I saw Rex Blow laying there. I called to him. No answer. So I crawled over there to where he was and kept calling to him and no answer. I go next to Rex and said, “Rex, what’s up.” his eyes are wide open, he looks like he’s just lying there.
Then I see it, a bullet hole right there (Dad indicates the middle of his forehead between his eyes). I closed his eyes for him. I’m sure he was doing what he was supposed to be doing and a sniper just got him.
I called to the medic and said, we’re got a dead man here, you’d better come and get him.” I crawled back to my position. Then I saw two men coming to get him.
The last I saw of Rex, he was being carried down the hill.
I shot the heck out of that gun..and then in a moment of…complete mind numbing stupidity traded it for a Winchester Model 121300 Shotgun…as I needed one for Deer season as we were going to be hunting in shotgun country..
They say hindsight is 20/20 and I really should have never done that becasue I find myself most often using my Ruger GP100 as my primary tool and my Model 1300 sits there in my blind…Could has just as well used my old single shot20 gaugeIthaca!!
So it goes and now I see this! 9 shot Single Six…Arrrgggh….
The Liberal asks the Nuge a Question about deer hunting and what a deer thinks…
The Nuge Replies…
Nugent replied, ‘Deer aren’t capable of that kind of thinking. All they care about is, what am I going to eat next, who am I going to screw next, and can I run fast enough to get away. They are very much like the Democrats in Congress.’
Gotta love it…Go read it all…
Rules?? What Are rules? I don't need no stinking rules!!!
