You Just Don't Mess With Someone Who Faced Down Three Tanks With A Bazooka

Not recommended.

Barfoot won the Medal of Honor for actions while his platoon was under German assault near Carano, Italy, in May 1944. He was credited with standing up to three German tanks with a bazooka and stopping their advance.

He also won the Purple Heart and other decorations, and served in Korea and Vietnam before retiring from the service in 1974.

I'd link to our previous Jawa posts on this story if I could find the damn things.

Anyway, good on ya, Col. Barfoot. You more than earned the right to fly the flag any damn place you please.

Go over to Hot Air to hear Mark Levin read Col. Barfoot's Medal of Honor citation.
