Wednesday's Hero

This Weeks Post Was Suggested By Kathi

Russell E. Tucker Sr.
Russell E. Tucker Sr.
72 years old from Buffalo, New York
1899? - 1971
U.S. Marines

Seven years shy of a century later, Russell E. Tucker Sr. got his due Friday at a ceremony where he was posthumously awarded the Purple Heart Medal for wounds he suffered as a Marine in World War I.

In June of 1918 Russel Tucker and his fellow Marines marched into German machine gun fire in Belleau, France and drove the enemy back.  Russel, then only 19-years-old, was shot in the temple and in the right hand losing part of his knuckle on his index finger.  But because there was no such award as the Purple Hart at the time it's taken almost a century for it to finally be awarded.

These brave men and women sacrifice so much in their lives just so others may get to enjoy freedom.  For that I am proud to call them Hero.
