    It was January, 1945 and Master Sgt. Roddie Edmonds had a gun to his head.

    The commandant of the Stalag IXA POW Camp near Ziegenhain, Germany, ordered Edmonds, of the 422nd Infantry Regiment, to turn over the Jewish-American soldiers under his command. Edmonds and his men – Jews and non-Jews alike – stood together in formation."..

    That's some pretty brave stuff. They should make a movie out of that.

    Amidst the dark and dreary news we so often hear, it's really nice to read stories of bravery, heroism and just plain old human goodness. To have the conviction to stare down pure evil and stand firm is something we all need to be reminded of and something this country desperately needs in larger numbers, especially now.

    Thank you for sharing the story.

    Agreed!!!!!!

    We need to be vigilant to ensure we turn our own government around and away from socialism...

    Otherwise, well I don't really want to think about how ugly it could get...

    You would hope that all these folks buying there first gun to protect themselves. Would see the government can't?

    Who knows? They may wonder what else the Government Is incompetent at?
    And what they can do better!
