|Colonel Ripley's awards.|
They' really should make a movie about this guy...he was a legend. His heroics are talked about in Boot Camps Marine Corps wide....But one thing irks me and I can't find the answer.
Why didn't he ever pin on stars? How could people that were less qualified, having less moral and physical courage be allowed to advance past him? Don't get me wrong. Attaining the rank of Colonel in the Marine Corps is NOTHING to sneeze at....but still...how did he not get selected?
If anyone knows then hit me up in my mailbox. Thanks.
