I used to see a lot of his movies when I was younger, Alan. One of the few who was able to leverage a military career into a movie career.

That's outstanding! Thanks for sharing. His uniform is on display inside the museum here, I guess it paid to be a small target standing behind that machine gun.

Nicely done, Alan. I believe he spent part of his childhood in nearby Farmersville, TX.

Yes he did, I'm not sure why the museum ended up where it did. It's one of those things you drive by a hundred times before making the time to stop by. His is an amazing story, the parallels to the comic book character "Captain America" are many.

He was ten years old when the camera I used was manufactured in the country of his future enemies.
