Medal of Honor


Rank and Organization:: Second Lieutenant, U.S. Army, Company L, 318th Infantry, 80th Infantry Division. Place and Date Near Neiderzerf, Germany, 14 March 1945. Entered Service at: Milford, Ind. Birth: Milford, Ind. G.O. No.: 18, 13 February 1946.

He was serving as a rifle platoon leader when his company began an assault on a wooded ridge northeast of the village of Neiderzerf, Germany, early on 13 March 1945. A short distance up the side of the hill, 2d Lt. Michael, at the head of his platoon, heard the click of an enemy machinegun bolt. Quietly halting the company, he silently moved off into the woods and discovered 2 enemy machineguns and crews. Executing a sudden charge, he completely surprised the enemy and captured the guns and crews. At daybreak, enemy voices were heard in the thick woods ahead. Leading his platoon in a flanking movement, they charged the enemy with hand grenades and, after a bitter fight, captured 25 members of an SS mountain division, 3 artillery pieces, and 20 horses. While his company was establishing its position, 2d Lt. Michael made 2 personal reconnaissance missions of the wood on his left flank. On his first mission he killed 2, wounded 4, and captured 6 enemy soldiers single-handedly. On the second mission he captured 7 prisoners. During the afternoon he led his platoon on a frontal assault of a line of enemy pillboxes, successfully capturing the objective, killing 10 and capturing 30 prisoners. The following morning the company was subjected to sniper fire and 2d Lt. Michael, in an attempt to find the hidden sniper, was shot and killed. The inspiring leadership and heroic aggressiveness displayed by 2d Lt. Michael upheld the highest traditions of the military service.

Two men charged after cop is lured from his vehicle and beaten

Leave a comment

This is from Fox News.

I bet they are Black Lives Matters Terrorist.

I do not believe the crap Jamaral Lee is putting out about just being a bystander taking video of the assault.

A California police officer is recovering after authorities said one man lured the cop from his cruiser Monday and beat him while another man filmed the assault and shouted encouragement.

Juan Gomez, 20, and Jamaral Lee, 35, were arrested and charged in the case.

“An event like this is just not typical,” Sacramento Police Sgt. Doug Morse told FOX40.

The unidentified officer was in his patrol car around 12:30 a.m. when authorities say Gomez approached the officer and told him there was a man with a gun in the vicinity, according to a Sacramento Police Department news release obtained by the Sacramento Bee.

“As the officer stepped out of his car, Gomez immediately and violently assaulted him,” the release stated.

Gomez allegedly continued beating the officer, who called for help and was eventually aided by private security guards stationed nearby. Gomez repeatedly tried to remove the officer’s gun from its holster during the attack, police said.

Investigators said the officer asked Lee for help multiple times, but he refused, according to FOX40. Lee said he didn’t know Gomez prior to the incident.

“My girlfriend and I were walking [in the area] and we saw a fight,” Lee told FOX40 from jail. “I got out my phone and recorded like an 8-second video…I don’t see why I’m in jail for that, I can do that.”

Lee said he did not encourage the fight, but admits shouting, “You can fight, but don’t grab the officer’s gun!”

The officer, who has only been described as a white male, sustained facial trauma, was treated at a local hospital and released. The injuries, however, have prevented him from returning to work so far.

Gomez was charged with assault and battery on a peace officer and resisting arrest. His bail was set at $500,000, according to FOX40. Lee was booked on suspicion of assault and battery on a police officer, advocating injury to a police officer and resisting arrest.

There was unanimous consensus that the world was getting colder.

There was never any question that the earth cooled sharply after the 1930’s, but it didn’t fit the political narrative, so NASA and NOAA simply made the cooling disappear.

In the Climategate E-mails, they were very up front about their intentions to do this.

Did You Know the Top 10 Most Expensive WWII Collectables Sold?

Leave a comment

This is from War History OnLine.


It’s a fact. Once relatively lowly priced and overlooked World War Two collectables, perhaps even considered worthless in their time, are now fetching considerable prices today, prices previously reserved only for the finest ancient arms and armour.

Whilst the majority of the WW2 collectables market is made up of very affordable pieces, there is a top end to the WW2 market frequented by wealthy collectors and museum buyers. Supply of these top-end items is very limited – but rarity is not on it’s own enough to drive prices high. The items are highly collectable which means plenty of interest and buyer competition in acquiring them.

At this end of the market are the items of significant historical merit, those unique items that collectors aspire to own because of the significant events, men or women associated with them. These are genuine historical artifacts, ownership brings the custodian closer to the history, it’s part of a learning experience. It’s no surprise therefore to see that six of the top ten are items associated directly with the commanders and leaders of the oposing WW2 forces.

For those of us who enjoy browsing militaria stores online, markets and fairs, aspiring to own one of these top end antiques is perhaps the closest we could get to actually owning one. If we’re lucky such items would be bought by a museum or private collector willing to one day put them on display for us to see.

Here are our top ten WW2 items sold, thanks to wikicollecting for the info:

10) Churchills snuff box £14,400

In tenth place of the top 10 most expensive WW2 items auctioned is Winston Churchill’s silver snuff box, presented to his House of Commons door keeper in 1941 after the door keeper lost his own snuff box in the blitz. Sold by Sotheby’s in July 2006 for a relatively modest sum.

9) Churchill type script £20,400

Next we have more Churchill memorabilia, a typescript with handwritten revisions by the man himself following the invasion of Sicily and three days after the overthrow of Mussolini. Sold by Sotheby’s in July 2003.

8) Peter White Archive £30,000

In the eighth spot are the remarkable letters of infantry platoon commander Peter White. The package included his handwritten diary covering 1944-1945, along with over 730 drawings in pen and ink, newspaper clippings, photographs, the typed and handwritten manuscript of his published work With the Jocks, his regimental KOSB Glengarry ,4 medals, a Kodak camera taken from a German prisoner in Holland with photographs developed from the film, and several sketchbook. Sold by Christies in June, 2007.

7) Mussolini’s Order of Courage Medal £74,000

Taken from him on the day of his arrest in Rome, this military medal was owned by Mussolini and sold by La Galerie Numismatique in March, 2012. They noted that the sale reflected a growing interest in artifacts relating to the dictator.

6) Hitler’s ‘Night Guard’ pistol Luger Pistol, £97,000

Next we have a rare Luger with a flashlight attachment. These pistols were used with tracer ammunition by officers in constant patrol around the Fuhrer. The particular pistol was sold by Rock Island Auctions on April 2012.


5) Anne Frank’s Letters £100,000

Fifth on our list and hitting the £100k mark are the pen-pal letters sent by Anne Frank and her sister to two girls in Iowa in 1940, just before the German invasion of the Netherlands sealed the Frank family’s doom. The unusual correspondence, verified by the director of the Anne Frank Center in Amsterdam, consists of two letters, a postcard, two passport-size photographs of the Jewish, and the envelope in which it all arrived in Danville, Iowa, nearly a half-century ago. The package of items were auctioned by Swann Galleries.

4) Enigma Cipher Machine £133,250

Next we have a highly collectable three-rotor British Enigma cypher machine in its original wooden box, dated circa 1939 and in excellent working condition, achieved the world record price by Christies in September, 2011.

3) Hitler’s Ceremonial Brass Writing Desk £254,750

Used by Hitler at the signing of the Munich Pact which preceded the Second World War, the desk is inscribed with initials ‘AH’ and includes ink wells and the Nazi crest of an Eagle and Swastika. The desk was liberated from Hitler’s Munich office by 2nd Lieutenant Jack McConn in 1945. Sold by Alexander Autographs in December, 2011.

2) Victoria Cross Medal, £335,000

Private Edward Kenna of the Australian 2/4th Battalian was involved in an action near Wewak, New Guinea in 1945, during which he exposed himself to heavy fire, killing a Japanese machine gun crew and making it possible for his company’s attack to succeed. For this he was awarded the Victoria Cross. His VC was subsequently sold at auction by Spink & Son in July, 2011.

1) Hitler’s Mercedes Benz Großer 770k: £6 million

Coming in at the number one spot is an armor-plated 1935 Mercedes 770A Kompressor Cabriolet believed to have been used to shuttle Adolf  Hitler through throngs of adoring Germans leading up to and during WW2. Connecting the car to Hitler required careful study of historical photographs and revealed the 770 carrying number plate: 1A 148461 was clearly shown in photographs with Hitler aboard. The sale was to a Russian Billionaire, brokered by German classic car dealer Michael Frohlich.

So now you know our top ten most expensive WW2 items sold, where do you go next to advance your own militaria collection? Our Buy pages of course. We’re not offering the world’s most expensive militaria items, but we do offer militaria and military antiques to suit all budgets >>
