5 of the fifty stories are about graduates of my military school and the odds of that occurring must be astronomical. One of them below re-posted.


1944_Ian_Moore_N_Gen_<span class= 

 
A Greenbrier Military School graduate and son of Colonel Moore of the school's administration. He was a fighter pilot and killed afterwards. Evidently no time to change into a non-sweat/dirt stained uniform. I assume his unit's patch was blanked out due to security. This must have been before December 16 as Marshall was made a 5 star then and for some strange reason, I cannot bring up this award date as I have done previously. Also, as I remember, this was a Silver Star, but no record also and I can't for the life of me believe that a 4 star would present anything less than a Silver Star. Whatever, Moore saw his duty and did it until the end.
