#Repost @zulufucxs (@get_repost) ・・・ "We were under constant fire; there was no such thing as a hospital. The corpsmen had to keep the hypodermic syringes taped in their armpits to keep the liquid in the syringes from freezing solid, and they stuffed morphine ampules inside their mouths to keep the doses from freezing. Unlike when I was fighting in the Pacific heat years ago, Chosin was so cold that when one was wounded, the blood coagulated, which saved many Marine lives. That night, the perimeter flares revealed wave after wave of Chinese advancing across the snow-covered ground. Hand grenades were lobbed at the onrushing enemy, machine guns opened up and the mortars began firing with devastating effect. Finally, our men met the enemy head-on, with bayonets. Temporarily, the Chinese had been beaten off by so-called rear echelon troops–but the Chinese had not figured on their opponents being Marines. I have often thought what the Chosin area must have looked like when spring arrived that following year. There must have been dead bodies all over the place. It has been said that the 1st Marine Division killed 40 Chinese to every dead Marine. It seems possible to me, since I saw the bodies of Chinese soldiers stacked like cordwood at daybreak after that battle." - Sgt. Lee K. Bergee, E.Co. 2nd BN, 1st Marines (WWII, Korean War) #hardcore #marines #usmc #stayzero #zerofoxtrot
#Repost @zulufucxs (@get_repost) ・・・ If you ever needed a boost of hardfuck patriotism, here you go. PFC George Dillboy, a native of Ottoman Turkey who migrated to the US, was deep into the Aisne-Marne offensive with the men of the 103rd Infantry, 26th Yankee division. On July 18, 1918 his platoon was ordered to recon a train station near Belleau, France when he and his platoon commander came under heavy MG fire. Completely exposed, Dillboy fixed his bayonet and made a lone charge across 100 yards of field directly towards the MG nest. Despite having his leg nearly severed above the knee from the bullets, he crawled his way forward and took out the crew with rifle fire from 25 yards. He died of his wounds and was awarded the Medal of Honor by President Wilson. The 22 year old was initially buried in France, but at the request of his father, his remains were buried in Alatsat, Turkey. During the Greco-Turkish war of 1922 rampaging Turkish soldiers seized the town, and in the process, his grave was desecrated, along with the American Flag being stolen from his casket. Upon hearing this, enraged president Warren G. Harding sent a US warship to Turkey to recover his remains, demanded a formal apology from the Turkish government and forced a Turkish honor guard to deliver his remains draped once again in an American Flag. Dillboy was escorted all the way to Arlington with full military honors with president Calvin Coolridge presiding at his burial in 1923. Dillboy had the distinction of being honored by 3 Presidents and according to General Pershings, considered one of the ten great heroes who died in the battlefield of France with super human heroism and valor. #ww1 #hero

#Repost @zulufucxs (@get_repost) ・・・ Matt Urban was an officer in the US Army who fought in World War 2, killing Nazis in 6 different campaigns on 2 different continents. He scouted, led charges upfront, and performed heroically in combat . The Germans nicknamed him “The Ghost” because no matter how many times he got wounded, he kept coming back to the front lines. - Saw action in North Africa, Italy, France, Belgium and Germany - Despite being previously wounded 3 separate times in North Africa, he landed on Omaha beach on D-Day with a broken leg and a cane. He managed to get his men off the beach by climbing on top of a tank and blasting German positions while being completely exposed to enemy fire - On 14 June 1944, he single handedly destroyed 2 enemy tanks; despite taking a 37mm Tank round to the leg. He refused evacuation and continued to fight. - At 0500 hours the next day, though badly wounded, he directed his company in another attack. One hour later he was again wounded. Suffering from two wounds, one serious, he was evacuated to England. - While recovering from his wounds, he learned of his unit's severe losses in the hedgerows of Normandy. Realizing his unit's need for battle-tested leaders, he voluntarily left the hospital and hitchhiked his way back to his unit near St. Lo, France. He found his company held up by strong enemy opposition. Captain Urban, though physically hampered by his leg wound, dashed through the scathing fire and mounted a tank. With enemy bullets ricocheting from the tank, Captain Urban ordered the tank forward and, completely exposed to the enemy fire, manned the machine gun and placed devastating fire on the enemy….again - On 2 August, Captain Urban was wounded in the chest by shell fragments and, disregarding the recommendation of the Battalion Surgeon, again refused evacuation. - On Sept 3, he was shot in the neck during an attack. Awarded 3 bronze stars, 7 purple hearts, 2 silver stars, the MOH and more, making him the most decorated soldier, surpassing Audie Murphy by 3 medals. #stayzero #ww2 #hardcore #badass
#Repost @zulufucxs (@get_repost) ・・・ In 1945, Col. Henry Mucci (Left) and Capt. Robert Prince (Right) were given the task to rescue over 500 American POWs held near Cabanatuan City, Philippines after the Japanese instituted a "kill-all" policy. With little time to prepare, the force gathered their gear and ventured into the jungle. A group of over 100 Rangers, some Alamo Scouts, and several hundred guerrillas, traveled 30 miles behind Japanese lines to reach the camp. On the night of Jan 30, 1945, the Rangers crawled on their bellies for over 300 yards in order to reach the camp's perimeter. A P-61 was scheduled to fly over the camp to distract the 200 guards within the camp. At 19:40, the whole prison compound erupted into small arms fire. Within the first fifteen seconds, all of the camp's guard towers and pillboxes were targeted and destroyed. The POWs thought the Japanese had begun the massacre. When the Rangers yelled to the POWs to come out and be rescued, many of the POWs feared that it was the Japanese attempting to trick them into being killed. The force moved quickly and efficiently through out the camp, killing enemy soldiers, tanks, and avoiding friendly fire. Japanese reinforcements were dispatched to the camp, but were stopped by the guerrillas short of the camp. By 20:15, the camp was secured and the force, along 522 POWs, managed to get back to friendly lines. After it was all said and done, the US sustained 2 KIA, 4 wounded and 2 POWs killed. The guerrillas sustained 45 wounded and the Japanese suffered 500-1000 KIA and 4 tanks destroyed. Both Mucci and Prince received the Distinguished Service Cross, all the officers and selected enlisted were awarded Silver Stars, while the rest, to include the guerrillas, Bronze Stars. To this day, this rescue mission is considered one of the most successful raids to date and it's strategy still taught at West Point. SIDENOTE: The attack itself has a lot of details, which putting them all on here would have made this post 3 days long.
