Earlier today I ran across this Wild Man while doing some research that was Appleseed related. This rendition is a hoot!!!!... Look up his MOH narrative, it is pretty darn good also….

Bad Azzes

LMAO these are great.
Yep, pretty much. Who I was looking for originally was Ole' Samuel Whittemore.

I was glad to see they included a fellow Submarineer also, as in "Mush" Morton.

The write up at the above link is not bad, but when you read James F. DeRose's book, (Unrestricted Warfare, How a New Breed of Officers Led the Submarine Force to Victory in WWII), you get an excellent and better rendition of Morton as the Skipper of the "238 Boat". He and his XO Dick O'Kane were bold to be sure. This is a “deep” subject about WWII Submarine Warfare and meb'e should only be discussed over on the Navy Thread. Sadly, Morton's disregard for the geographical/tactical situation got him and his loyal crew put on "Eternal Patrol"..

But God bless those wonderful and Brave men all of them.. Cause without them we’d be speaking the Kings English or German or Japanese today!!!

The FUNK!!!!

They aren't remembered as the Greatest Generation for nothin' !!
Proof positive, get your Funk on Brother !!
Yeah Buddy!!!!!!,
He sure gives credence to that 70's/80’s term (I think???... “Doin’ The FUNK)!!!!
Inspirational to be sure… And actually that term, “rock and a hard place” , where that German officer has him dead to rights, and First Sgt Funk goes Bsereker/Totally FU#%IN’ Thermo Nuclear WarfareBRSTBOMB is “The Bomb” as all the youngster tend to say…
I think a movie documentary of Funk’s time in uniform would be OFS!!!.. I have tons of fun visualizing his actions where he received the DSC and that of being a Army MOH recipient. I’m sure Funk would have a very hard time in today’s Army….Sad but True..RNGR4
