Honor & Integrity
H/T Joyce C
Look carefully at the B-17 and note how shot up it is - one engine dead, tail, horizontal stabilizer and nose shot up... It was ready to fall out of the sky. (This is a painting done by an artist from the description of both pilots many years later.) Then realize that there is a German ME-109 fighter flying next to it. Now read the story below. I think you'll be surprised.....
Charlie Brown was a B-17 Flying Fortress pilot with the 379th Bomber Group at Kimbolton , England . His B-17 was called 'Ye Old Pub' and was in a terrible state, having been hit by flak and fighters. The compass was damaged and they were flying deeper over enemy territory instead of heading home to Kimbolton.
After flying the B-17 over an enemy airfield, a German pilot named Franz Steigler was ordered to take off and shoot down the B-17. When he got near the B-17, he could not believe his eyes. In his words, he 'had never seen a plane in such a bad state'. The tail and rear section was severely damaged, and the tail gunner wounded. The top gunner was all over the top of the fuselage. The nose was smashed and there were holes everywhere.
Despite having ammunition, Franz flew to the side of the B-17 and looked at Charlie Brown, the pilot. Brown was scared and struggling to control his damaged and blood-stained plane.
Aware that they had no idea where they were going, Franz waved at Charlie to turn 180 degrees. Franz escorted and guided the stricken plane to, and slightly over, the North Sea towards England . He then saluted Charlie Brown and turned away, back to Europe . When Franz landed he told the CO that the plane had been shot down over the sea, and never told the truth to anybody. Charlie Brown and the remains of his crew told all at their briefing, but were ordered never to talk about it.
More than 40 years later, Charlie Brown wanted to find the Luftwaffe pilot who saved the crew. After years of research, Franz was found. He had never talked about the incident, not even at post-war reunions.
They met in the USA at a 379th Bomber Group reunion, together with 25 people who are alive now - all because Franz never fired his guns that day.
When asked why he didn’t shoot them down, Stigler later said, “I didn’t have the heart to finish those brave men. I flew beside them for a long time. They were trying desperately to get home and I was going to let them do that. I could not have shot at them. It would have been the same as shooting at a man in a parachute.”
Both men died in 2008.
This is a true story
A few areas exaggerated when you check with snopes but otherwise a true story.
THIS WAS BACK IN THE DAYS WHEN THERE WAS HONOR IN BEING A WARRIOR....THEY PROUDLY WORE UNIFORMS, AND THEY DIDN'T HIDE IN AMBUSH INSIDE A MOSQUE, OR BEHIND WOMEN AND CHILDREN, NOR DID THEY USE MENTALLY RETARDED WOMEN AS SUICIDE BOMBERS TO TARGET AND KILL INNOCENT CIVILIANS....HOW TIMES HAVE CHANGED...

Australia Loves India
Save Middle America
A Sick Example Below- WAKE UP AMERICA!!
Obama has appointed Kevin Jennings
founder of GLSEN (Gay, Lesbian, Straight Education Network)
Just another way for Obama to show his contempt for the righteous middle class, to confuse sane values in the minds of children and destroy the wishes of parents for a normal, healthy education praising American values for their children. I wonder if Obama will teach his daughters about fisting? Is this technique taught in their school?
Obama thinks this is funny, he's laughing at the desperation he's causing. It suits his purpose, as Alinsky preached: destroy the middle class. No country can thrive without a strong middle class --- look at every Moslem country, an all-powerful, rich dictator ruling tyrannically over 10 million poor devils with nothing in between.
President Obama has appointed Kevin Jennings, founder of GLSEN (Gay, Lesbian, Straight Education Network) — which sponsored the conference that produced the notorious “Fistgate” scandal (in which young teens were guided on how to perform dangerous homosexual perversions including “fisting”) — to head up “Safe Schools” efforts at the Department of Education

6th June 1944
65th anniversary of the D-Day landings
There is no national one-up-manship in Normandy this weekend. There is great national pride, of course, but everyone is acutely conscious that this was the greatest team effort in the history of democracy.
