Actor and film star Gary Sinise is one of our favorite people here at the 59 VETERANS PROJECT. And for good reason. Today, there is perhaps no one–celebrity or otherwise–who supports and helps veterans like Gary does. Recently he was recognized and awarded a prestigious medal for this, and it is our pleasure to share news of this event with all our friends and veterans throughout the country (http://tinyurl.com/k9rhycp).

Hand salute to Gary Sinise!

SHARE THIS AMAZING STORY WITH YOUR NETWORK!
Without a doubt, World War II had more acts of bravery, Medals of Honor awarded, and more incredible exploits and stories to tell than any other war or conflict in U.S. history. Case in point: Guy Gabaldon, U.S. Marine.
Guy, who at a very young age became parentless and was adopted by a Japanese-American family (and learned to read, write and speak perfect Japanese), became a Marine when the Second World War broke out. But what he did in that war is utterly astonishing!
At the mere age of 18, Guy Gabaldon captured (or persuaded to surrender) roughly 1,500 Japanese soldiers and civilians during the Battles of Saipan and Tinian (1944). For these actions, he was nominated for the Medal of Honor, but was instead awarded the Silver Star, which was later upgraded to the Navy Cross Medal. His exploits were the basis for the 1960 Hollywood film Hell to Eternity. His friends called him Gabby, but he remained a Marine’s Marine to all his fellow Leathernecks until his death in 2006.
The movie, starring Jeffrey Hunter, is a great one, and all of us here at the 59 VETERANS PROJECT recommend you catch it when you can; and Guy’s autobiography, “Saipan: Suicide Island.”

“The first night I was on Saipan, I went out on my own…I always worked on my own, and brought back two prisoners using my backstreet Japanese.” –Guy Gabaldon

Moving Masters Wants to Tell You About Audie Murphy

AUDIE MURPHY
PLEASE SHARE THIS WITH VETERANS & FRIENDS!
MOVING MASTERS enjoys providing its flat-rate, long-distance moving services to customers throughout the New York, NYC, Tri-State region and east coast of the U.S. We value all our customers and appreciate their appreciation of the valuable service we provide them. But we have to admit we value our seniors and veterans most of all, perhaps.
Just visit our Seniors & Veterans page on our website (http://www.movingmasters.net/) and you’ll see what we mean. So it is our great pleasure to share this post from the 59 Vets Project on the subject of a renowned U.S. veteran…who was undoubtedly one of the bravest men to ever live!
AUDIE MURPHY, U.S. ARMY
Probably the most decorated combat soldier in United States military history is World War II hero Audie Murphy. Among his medals and awards are the Congressional Medal of Honor, the Distinguished Service Cross, two Silver Stars, the Bronze Star (2) with Combat V, the Legion of Merit, three Purple Hearts, the French Legion of Honor, and so many more it’s impossible to enumerate them here. Audie also was promoted to the final officer rank of captain after starting out as an enlisted man. What is really funny is the fact that he attempted to enlist in every branch of the service but was rejected because of his size, until the Army finally accepted him.
Immediately after the war Audie was discovered by the great film actor James Cagney who then helped him get into films and become a movie star in his own right, where he made over 40 films, some of them with the biggest movie stars and directors in Hollywood. In addition, Audie Murphy wrote several hit songs and gripping poetry, a sample of which is included with this post.

THE CROSSES GROW ON ANZIO by Audie Murphy
Oh, gather ’round me, comrades,
and listen while I speak;
Of a war, a war, a war —
where hell is six feet deep.
Along the shore, the cannons roar.
Oh how can a soldier sleep?
The going’s slow on Anzio
and hell is six feet deep.
Praise be to God for this captured sod
that’s rich where blood does seep;
With yours and mine, like butchered swine;
and hell is six feet deep.
That death does wait there’s no debate;
no triumph will we reap
The crosses grow on Anzio,
where hell is six feet deep.

“These cloudy days make you wanna cry.  It breaks your heart when someone leaves and you don’t know why.” –Glenn Frey

Dear Song List:

The world lost Glenn Frey recently.  He was an inimitable songwriter, singer, musician and co-founder of the equally inimitable soft rock pop group The Eagles.  I don’t know about you, but a fair portion of the soundtrack of my life consisted of the music of The Eagles and of their lilting songs when members of the group went solo.  This was definitely true for Glenn Frey; so I’ve included a few of his solo hits here as my top favorite songs created by his artist’s mind and soul.

This year has not gotten off to a good start, in my humble opinion.  Beautiful music, and the artists who create beautiful music, very much help define the canvass of our lives and become part of those permanent memories we take with us through life.  Standing in a supermarket or at a car wash, a Glenn Frey or Don Henley or Eagles song comes on…and you are immediately teleported back to a happy time in your life.  A time that is unforgettable and irreplaceable.  Thus the power of beautiful music is omnipotent and becomes so much of who we are and what we feel and think.  I hope we sustain no more losses like David Bowie and Glenn Frey this year.  I want 2016 to be filled with only happy memories and beautiful music.  I don’t believe I am alone in these hopes.  Yes?
