On this Veterans' Day, a profound Thank You to all who served from one who did not, and who treasures their sacrifice and service all the more for it.

What Orville Bierkle, USMC, was doing 61 years ago this week (showcasing his impeccable grammar and dry wit

"FRIDAY, 10 NOVEMBER: Today is the Marine Corps' 175th birthday. To celebrate, the whole company went out on a combat patrol about 0900."

And of course, there's the everpresent cold:

"SATURDAY, 11 NOVEMBER: ...we suffered our first frostbite casualty; the gunny froze his feet and had to be sent back."

Thank You Sergeant Bierkle! Because of you and your Chosin Few brethren, a South Korean may read this thread today.
