I have heard that Danny Dietz broke the O course record on a bad ankle before being medically rolled from 231 to 232. His parents were given a plaque from Buds

As here we are a day after D-DAY. Here is one story of what NCDU'S (Naval Combat Demolition UNIT'S) did during those operations.

In a fist fight, scrappy small guys will NOT give up if they are conscious. I always admired that.

Whoa 13th.  When I studied Jujitsu I found being short had definite advantages.  More room to maneuver when you can get under your opponents swings.

I'm short. 5 foot 5 and 140. I've taken a lot of heat all my life for it too. People find it real easy, especially young men my age, to think they can push me around or look down on me (no pun intended). I just look right through them. Whenever they (rarely) have mentioned me being short I just simply say its never stopped me from accomplishing anything. Ill figure out a way to get it done. Might not look quite right, take longer, and be far more difficult for me to complete versus someone taller or heavier but it gets done. Its funny too how whenever I have to deflect some BS all of a sudden I have "small man complex". I don't walk around acting tough at all and I never will. I do give people a lot of breathing room in relationships or situations. I draw my line in the sand right in front of my feet and nowhere near anybody elses. Cross that line I'm essentially backed into a corner and I'll have no choice but to rectify that and quickly too.

D-DAY today, I have a NCDU question majority of beach clearing for Europe was by NDCU's and why would they not be part of UDT/SEAL. They braved the beaches with all the German guns and took 54% causality rate more than any other group. They were mostly SeaBee's and Army Engineers. Majority stayed SeaBees and so would they not be called UDT/SEAL and why shouldn't they, did some heroic shit and Several of them received the Navy Cross One was a CEC/Corps SeaBee officer an Ensign who also served in Korea with SeaBees and then and stayed until he retired as a Reserve Commander.

This is statement of their history back on this day June 6, 1944. This came from our History page.

During D-Day of the Normandy invasion, 6 June 1944, the Seabees were among the first to go ashore as members of naval combat demolition units. Working with U.S. Army Engineers, their crucial task was to destroy the steel and concrete barriers that the Germans had built in the water and on the beaches to forestall any amphibious landings. When dawn betrayed their presence, they came under murderous German fire. Whole teams were wiped out when shells prematurely detonated their explosives. Heedless of the danger, the survivors continued to work until all their explosive charges were planted. As a result of their heroic actions, the charges went off on schedule and huge holes were blown in the enemy's defenses.

We must remember all that gave today for the freedoms we and the rest of the world has they are the greatest generation and we should learn from them. I feel we have lost site of what they paid so much for.
