Great article. Serious bad-ass. Glad he is still around to share his stories.

What really blew me away were the awards accumulated by the original Raider battalions:
- 7 MOH
- 141 Navy Crosses
- 330 Silver Stars
- 2,406 Purple Hearts

That was from a group of 8,000 men over a span of only two years. That's just astounding. Maybe I shouldn't be so amazed given the nature of the battles they fought and their missions. It still seems incredible to me.

And I don't understand why the original Raiders were disbanded so quickly, given the success they demonstrated.
