TALES OF VALOR HALF-HISTORY: Daylan McLee | On Father's Day 2020 in Uniontown, PA Daylan McLee snapped into action to pull Officer Hanley from a burning vehicle following a car crash. This is the kind of thing that happens more often than the main stream narrative wants us to think.
"There is value in every human life. We are all children of God and I can’t imagine just watching anyone burn,” he said. “No matter what other people have done to me, or other officers, I thought, ‘this guy deserves to make it home safely to his family.’” -Daylan McLee

Deming's Medal of Honor citation from WW1 indicates that despite several and severe wounds, he stayed in the fight and was "the last to leave" as forces were falling back from an advanced position. A simple and direct story today for your dose of half-history!

TALES OF VALOR EP. 40: Operation Colossus | The first British Special Forces airborne raid of WWII found Lt. Dudley Wrangel Clarke knowing exactly what he wanted in his Commandos: “We looked for the dash of the Elizabethan pirate, the Chicago gangster, and the Frontier tribesman.” This young group needed to be self-motivated and willing to move forward no matter what. What we learn today is that some no-matter what's definitely came their way.
