Navy Sailor Receives Commendation, 63 Years Late

Read this one about a sailor in the US navy during WW2. It's too bad it took so long. Even then it wasn't a good idea to take the initiative, I guess. That's why the Germans in that conflict were so successful, against unimaginable odds. They were allowed a lot of latitude to make quick decisions based on fluid situations. Our armed forces still don't really have that ability, or right.
It's called rules of engagement, and it gets our guys killed.

I'll be back
