Very cool post. My neighbor landed on D-Day but I can't remember where. I'll have to go ask him again. He was in the artillery but his gun got lost, so the first thing they did was try to find their gun. Sounds kinda funny, but I guess that sort of stuff happens.

over this weekend, I met Ed Pepping, the last surviving medic from the famous 101st AB E company 506

Guy is like a million years old and is still flirty with the women out there. damn at his age and he's still chasing skirts.

Many of the featured military heroes showed up and paid homage to him. Many of the featured military heroes are highly ranked and decorated, but still stopped to thank this old gentleman, a private for his service to his people and country. No where in this world, can we find place where rank and awards means less than the face of valor.

Mr Ehlers was the guest speaker at the second GCA convention that was held in Reno. (Joe Foss spoke at the first Reno convention.) I had the pleasure of meeting him and listening to him speak.

Walt Ehlers was actually recently a guest speaker at my younger brother's boy scout troop meeting. He told his D-Day story to the troop... really interesting.

The best part right here:

Quote:
ON GUN CONTROL

“World War II cost us over 340,000 American lives because of gun control.

“Whoa, what do you mean gun control?” he asks. “All of the countries we fought had gun control and (the people) lost control of their government and they couldn’t do anything about what their government was doing, so we had to go over there and fight because they didn’t have any guns of their own to fight with. The people lost control of their governments. They could not protect themselves, defend against their own government.

“You know why the Japanese never attacked mainland U.S.? Because they knew we all had guns. They would never be safe anywhere. In the United States the people are the government. If we lose control of ourselves, if we turn it all over to them and we have no say about anything, we are in deep trouble.

“Especially if they take our guns away, they know they can just walk all over us anytime they want us to do anything. That’s how those governments (during World War II) got control of those countries and it cost us a lot of lives.”
