    MOH Recpient on Sons of Guns

    Not typically a fan of this show as about 2/3 of the cast make me want to get out a baseball bat and travel down to LA. Anyway,

    Had the marathon on while I was reading and they had a WWII Marine on there who as a flamethrower operator won the CMOH on Iwo Jima. He was fairly vague about what he did, understandably, but it involved 6-7 pillboxes and 6-7 sets of flamethrower tanks. Was very cool to see the 89 year old guy throw the set on his back and shoot the thing. Greatest Generation indeed.

    Overall a pretty non-annoying episode and worth watching it to see Woody (the Marine) I had chills multiple times during the show.

    I am proud to say he is a WV Native and I think still current resident. Part of one the greatest generation of Americans and a true hero. I was proud to see him on there.

    Anyone who would go onto Iwo Jima to root out the Japanese in caves, holes, and bunkers by strapping a huge bomb on their back was a Medal of honor winner regardless if they received the award or not. it takes a special breed of man to do what that man did.

    I believe it was John F. Kennedy who said that he would have rather received the MOH than to have been president, because it meant more.

    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    I loved the part where he said when his tanks ran out he had to crawl back and get a new set each time because nobody would bring him any.

    I have actually been to Woody's house and personally spoken with him. He definitely is a true American hero but he just says "I had a job to do and just did it."

    The people are annoying. The main guy isnt so bad, but his daughter needs to go, as do the schmucks in the back. Its just a bit silly IMO.

    They are from baton rouge! No offense to anyone on here of course. The guys on swamp people are twice as quirky. haha. I'm sure there 50 other shops they could have chosen for the show, but something as obscure as Louisiana is more interesting than watching ANOTHER series about a bakery or a pawn shop in LA or New York or something.

    If I remember correctly, they said that he is the last living Marine Medal of Honor recipient from WW II. I liked that they didn't charge him for the flame thrower too.

    The daughter is Daddys girl, and a bit annoying but, it is obvious she keeps the purse tightly shut and runs the business pretty effectively. The tattooed gunsmith seems to know what he is doing just tends to forget he is an employee. The math teacher guy is a frickin genius...the other guys are schmoes.
