Another Hero Moves On

The following is the Medal of Honor citation for Technical Sergeant Russell Dunham, U.S. Army, Company I, 30th Infantry, 3d Infantry Division

For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at risk of life above and beyond the call of duty. At about 1430 hours on 8 January 1945, during an attack on Hill 616, near Kayserberg, France, T/Sgt. Dunham single-handedly assaulted 3 enemy machineguns. Wearing a white robe made of a mattress cover, carrying 12 carbine magazines and with a dozen hand grenades snagged in his belt, suspenders, and buttonholes, T/Sgt. Dunham advanced in the attack up a snow-covered hill under fire from 2 machineguns and supporting riflemen. His platoon 35 yards behind him, T/Sgt. Dunham crawled 75 yards under heavy direct fire toward the timbered emplacement shielding the left machinegun. As he jumped to his feet 10 yards from the gun and charged forward, machinegun fire tore through his camouflage robe and a rifle bullet seared a 10-inch gash across his back sending him spinning 15 yards down hill into the snow. When the indomitable sergeant sprang to his feet to renew his 1-man assault, a German egg grenade landed beside him. He kicked it aside, and as it exploded 5 yards away, shot and killed the German machinegunner and assistant gunner. His carbine empty, he jumped into the emplacement and hauled out the third member of the gun crew by the collar. Although his back wound was causing him excruciating pain and blood was seeping through his white coat, T/Sgt. Dunham proceeded 50 yards through a storm of automatic and rifle fire to attack the second machinegun. Twenty-five yards from the emplacement he hurled 2 grenades, destroying the gun and its crew; then fired down into the supporting foxholes with his carbine dispatching and dispersing the enemy riflemen. Although his coat was so thoroughly blood-soaked that he was a conspicuous target against the white landscape, T/Sgt. Dunham again advanced ahead of his platoon in an assault on enemy positions farther up the hill. Coming under machinegun fire from 65 yards to his front, while rifle grenades exploded 10 yards from his position, he hit the ground and crawled forward. At 15 yards range, he jumped to his feet, staggered a few paces toward the timbered machinegun emplacement and killed the crew with hand grenades. An enemy rifleman fired at pointblank range, but missed him. After killing the rifleman, T/Sgt. Dunham drove others from their foxholes with grenades and carbine fire. Killing 9 Germans–wounding 7 and capturing 2–firing about 175 rounds of carbine ammunition, and expending 11 grenades, T/Sgt. Dunham, despite a painful wound, spearheaded a spectacular and successful diversionary attack.

T/Sgt. Dunham passed away today at the age of 89. Stay safe, soldier.

One More Step To Killing God

There was an amendment in the Stimupolooza Bill today that said simply- remove the paragraph that says if any institution receives these funds, they cannot have any kind of religious activity where the funds were used.

The amendment was rejected by a vote of  43 – 54.

No big deal? Separation of Church and State? (Which is a LIE, because nowhere does it say that.) Think again.

If a school gets federal dollars to repair their aging buildings, then students could not gather in those buildings to have a bible meeting. Automatically, churches are banned from getting funding. ANY INSTITUTION GETTING MONEY IS PROHIBITED FROM ANY FORM OF RELIGIOUS GATHERING.

The Supreme Court has already ruled that mere prayer is a religious gathering. So I guess Congress cannot use the funds to provide upkeep on the capitol building? That or banish the opening prayer?

These secular fascists are beginning to get under my skin.
