    Major Kurt Chew En Lee has died! He was the first Asian officer in the Marine Corps. I have admired his courage, aggressiveness and fighting spirit since seeing a special about him on the Military Channel. It's always sad to see these fearless military leaders fading from our nations bloodstream. There are so few to replace them! Here's a salute Major Lee!

    RIP -

    As a side note - just noticed the other day they have renamed Military Channel to American Heroes Channel.

    Major Lee was a total bad-a$$ at the Chosin Reservoir.

    For details, read "Breakout", by Martin Russ.

    Everyone that made it out of the Frozen Chosin was a bad a$$, in my opinion.

    And When he gets to heaven,
    To Saint Peter he will tell;
    One more Marine reporting, sir.
    I've served my time in Hell!
