We were in the Chicago O'hare first class lounge a couple of months ago, Mickey Rooney, his current wife, and Son were sitting there, I said Hi, we chatted, Nancy joined us, and mentioned I was retired military.
Mickey proudly told me that he was awarded a Bronze Star by Gen Patton (WW2), at that point Nancy told him that I was awarded XXX, for flying 3 1/2 tours in VN...Mickey got to his feet, saluted me, and said "Thank you, Sir, and God Bless you". Pretty sweet moment, which I had forgotten til I read the post re "The Bridges of Toko Ri", in the "Green Beret" movie thread.
Have you at least seen "the Bridge at Toko-Ri" - and when are you going to answer? You never even asked for discovery time or a continuance."
