D-Day was one of those "turning point" moments that gets all the attention, including from me. What gets forgotten is the day-in, day-out grind that also is above and beyond the call of duty, but which does not get the attention.

Roaming_Gnome tells us about one:
We took a patient to Military Hospital yesterday from his home, for some wound care. He is a WWII combat vet, and a holder of the Purple Heart. As he tells it, his unit was searching for some downed pilots in the jungles of some Pacific island when he was shot in the leg. His leg essentially had a hole in it, with all kinds of fun stuff hanging out of it.
That's all I'm going to post, because the story is worth your time, and your click.

So what are you still here for? Go read.
