The Mercury "7" especially John Glenn. He only got better as he got older.

Clint, I read Mr. Hoopers MOH citation, nothing short of amazing! I've read a lot of these over the years, and hands down the most unbelievable one I ever read was for Roy Benavidez.

When he was medevac'ed out, they thought he was dead until he spit in the medics face as he was zipping up the body bag! Of course he was a Texan

I will only wear a Jersey with a sports figures name on it when they agree to wear one with my name. So the short answer is never. I look at that as a form of worship. A business or product or organization is different as that is an effort by several or perhaps many. Also will wear team Jerseys as that is an effort of many. No single person makes a team or is worthy of worship.

This, Gentlemen, is the TRUE definition of a Hero!!, along with anyone who is a mentor and father figure to youth.

I remember it sitting at the dock with a lumpy idle and the water was going in and out of the pipes, it was so cool! My dad used to let me steer it. I was 5 when this was taken. My cousin was a gear head and always had Chevys. My dad was a gear head from the Flat head era..

Those people from the Depression/WW2 era were so special.. They were the so compassionate and loving while being tough enough to hand you your rear end at a moments notice, I think the war did that to them.. Rich or poor they were all like that too!

Having no father around, the idiot box was my babysitter.

Vic Morrow as Sarge on COMBAT was one of mine. Then a few years later I was in Western Surplus and he was there, having a young clerk at the gun counter demonstrate how to operate a .32 auto pistol! That ruined my whole image of him.

Other screen heroes were John Wayne, Glenn Ford and Robert Mitchum.

Custom painters don't screw up! They just add more graphics.

HEY PALMER! I dont know any of those dudes, but I now know why you and I get on well. PS, I watched ' THUD PILOTS' on wifey's Amazon Prime subs last night. WOW! To hear those dudes sort of joke about it well... special.
