  1. Toppenish is next door to Wapato, where my mother was born (1923), so this is quite interesting.

    Just searched, and found no mention of him in either the Oregonian or Yakima Herald-Republic. Pathetic.’

    Thanks.

  2. Samoore, That’s one really great things about Brit paper and most especially The Telegraph, who pioneered this kind of reporting/obit. Over the years I have been here, I’ve discovered a number of Americans both military and civilian, who have done something of note. Yet none of us had heard about many of them. So from time to time with something a bit different or unusual in some way, I post them here.
    For more really interesting reading, check out the Obituaries at:

    There’s loads of interesting people there we’ve never heard of, but in many cases their exploits were very noteworthy.

  3. It takes a certain kind of person willing to overcome a fear and do something they know they ‘can’t’ do to save another person. The true definition of hero.

    No American papers are devoted to lying about the criminal sub-human scum, Criminal Illegal Invaders and Politicos - without giving a nano-second to the real Heroes among us - or the real goodness in the World.

  4. Wardmom, all true but. The reason is cos they are very busy with just so many people to do the work of promoting diversity and multi-kulturism . They just don’t have time for that other stuff.  Yeah I know. Pathetic.
