    One of those prisoners is from Richmond and is featured in an iconic photo that shows he and his fellow captives being rescued. In that photo, James "Denny" Landrum is holding an immense American flag.

    It was nice to see the MSM man up for a change and do the right thing with a human interest story like this one.
    Firing a suppressed is on my Bucket List.

    I'm just a spoke in the wheel but not a big deal.

    America...a Constitutional Republic. NOT a democracy as the liberals would have us believe.

    Thanks for the post. I hope they succeed in getting it transferred to the VA War Memorial for display. I'd like to see it.
