OLDEST LIVING MEDAL OF HONOR RECIPIENT — A WORLD WAR II VET WHO SAID POIGNANT PRAYER BEFORE BATTLE OF THE BULGE HEROICS — HAS DIED
October 5, 2013
The oldest living Medal of Honor recipient has died.
Nicholas Oresko, 96, an Army master sergeant who was badly wounded as he single-handedly took out two enemy bunkers during the Battle of the Bulge in 1945, died Friday night at Englewood Hospital and Medical Center, hospital officials announced Saturday.
Men like Oresco are taking the Honor Flight every day to visit the World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C. But the Obama administration has closed all war memorials due to the budget debate.
In all previous similar government shutdowns, these open memorials have never been shut down.
Then again, there has never been an administration as callous, partisan, and just plain dictator-like as the Obama "regime"....
