Message: I am a 29 year old male that is looking for any care packages possible. Anything that can help alleviate the costs of being out here would help dearly. Things like laundry detergent, liquid soap, shampoo and conditioner, gift cards to load my wifi puck back up, AAA batteries, and some snacks to keep in our housing area. Really anything will be greatly appreciated. Letters too would be cool if that is a thing y'all do. Thank you for all y'alls support!
Naval Station Rota, Spain. (September 22, 2022): Army Colonel Russell Reeder was himself an American hero, even Hollywood standards. In 1944, Colonel Reeder commanded the 12th Infantry Regiment, 4th Infantry Division’s 3,000-man soldiers on D-Day. His unit was dropped two miles from their landing site forcing Col. Reeder and his regiment to fight off Utah beach and attack inland. Col. Reeder was hit by enemy artillery, injuring his led which was later amputated. He was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross, Silver Star, and the Purple Heart.
His exploits became a book and later the 1955 film The Long Gray Line starring Tyron Power.
What is not common knowledge is the critical role this American hero played in creating the Bronze Star Medal we know today. While working in Washington D.C., Colonel Reeder wanted to develop a new award that small unit commanders could give to reward their servicemembers for extended periods of meritorious service in combat or for common acts of heroism. The Colonel wanted the medals awarded quickly, without lengthy delays and red tape.
Today, the Bronze Star is the military’s fourth highest award and thousands have been awarded since its inception. Much rarer are those receiving a V-device for combat gallantry as only one in forty Bronze Stars are conferred for personal courage under fire.
