America, Friday, and Memes: TERANS FIRST WWII HERO HONORED WITH MEDALS AND DIPLOMAAT 102 More than 70 years late, WW II war hero finally gets his due. A 102-year-old veteran who served with Canadian and American forces and survived captivity by the Nazis has received his high school diploma and overdue medals. Sydney Cole dropped out of his Buffalo, New York, high school in the 1930s. Rejected by the U.S. Army Air Corps before America entered the war, Cole headed across the border and joined the Canadian Royal Air Force. He was discharged after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor and joined the U.S. Army in 1943. Cole was piloting an artillery observation plane during the Battle of the Bulge when he was shot down in early 1945. He spent the next four months in a German POW camp. Cole received his diploma Friday and 10 medals, including a Purple Heart and Bronze Medal. I congratulate the veteran on receiving high awards, but at the same time I feel sorry that he had to wait so long. The bureaucrats in the Congress and in the Ministry of Defense are to blame for this. who blame the honor, dignity and feats of the true American heroes. They just spit on the honor, dignity and exploits of true American heroes. Because of them many brave veterans have not lived to see their medals. This system of rewarding veterans must be urgently reformed so that war heroes do not have to wait more than 70 years to get military honors. veteranscomefirst veterans_us Veterans Usveterans veteransUSA SupportVeterans Politics USA America Patriots Gratitude HonorVets thankvets supportourtroops semperfi USMC USCG USAF Navy Army military godblessourmilitary soldier holdthegovernmentaccountable RememberEveryoneDeployed Usflag StarsandStripes
