My Uncle Bill Newnan was an extremely modest person who sought no glory in his daily life. Though his poor eye-sight would have given him a medical out from the draft during World War II, he became both a Ranger and another type of heroic service man. After escaping from Italy he could have stayed home as a war hero, instead he joined another elite fighting unit and went off to serve in China. This is a remarkable war story, and extremely well told by the person who had earned the right to tell it. Dad was no slouch either.
