    Alek Skarlatos was one of three young U.S. soldiers on the right vacation at the right time when a terrorist attempted to launch an attack on a train in Paris, France last summer. Skarlatos, along with friends Spencer Stone and Anthony Sadler, successfully stopped the gunman and disarmed him from his weapon of choice, an AK 47. The heroics of these young men earned them praise from the people of France and the U.S., medals for bravery at the Pentagon and, in Skarlatos' case, celebrity status, as he competed on "Dancing with the Stars."

    ~ D-DAY, June 6, 1944 ~ NORMANDY INVASION May 1944 had been chosen at the conference in Washington in May 1943 as the time for the invasion. Difficulties in assembling landing craft forced a postponement until June, but June 5 was fixed as the unalterable date by Eisenhower on May 17. As the day approached and troops began to embark for the crossing, bad weather set in, threatening dangerous landing conditions. After tense debate, Eisenhower and his subordinates decided on a 24-hour delay, requiring the recall of some ships already at sea. Eventually, on the morning of June 5,...

    Fully sixteen years after the State of Texas began honoring its military heroes with the Texas Legislative Medal of Honor, the most decorated combat soldier of World War II was finally recognized by Governor Rick Perry and the Texas legislature. Born in the Lone Star State in 1924, the 5'6", 130lb Audie Leon Murphy was told he was too small to make it in the Navy or the US Marines. So the baby-faced, underaged Texan enlisted in the Army and in early 1942 was shipped to North Africa as part of the Third Infantry Division. And in 3 years of...
