Specialist Fourth Class Frank A. Herda


Citation:

For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity in action at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty. Sp4c. Herda (then Pfc.) distinguished himself while serving as a grenadier with Company A. Company A was part of a battalion-size night defensive perimeter when a large enemy force initiated an attack on the friendly units. While other enemy elements provided diversionary fire and indirect weapons fire to the west, a sapper force of approximately 30 men armed with hand grenades and small charges attacked Company A's perimeter from the east. As the sappers were making a last, violent assault, 5 of them charged the position defended by Sp4c. Herda and 2 comrades, 1 of whom was wounded and lay helpless in the bottom of the foxhole. Sp4c. Herda fired at the aggressors until they were within 10 feet of his position and 1 of their grenades landed in the foxhole. He fired 1 last round from his grenade launcher, hitting 1 of the enemy soldiers in the head, and then, with no concern for his safety, Sp4c. Herda immediately covered the blast of the grenade with his body. The explosion wounded him grievously, but his selfless action prevented his 2 comrades from being seriously injured or killed and enabled the remaining defender to kill the other sappers. By his gallantry at the risk of his life in the highest traditions of the military service, Sp4c. Herda has reflected great credit on himself, his unit, and the U.S. Army.


Sp4c. Herda: We humbly salute you and thank you for your service.

James Garner, R.I.P.

Sadly, actor James Garner passed away yesterday.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

James Garner played the handsome, likeable rogue Bret Maverick in the western series of the same name, the handsome, likeable rogue James Rockford in the Rockford Files, the handsome, likeable rogue in... well, you get the idea. But, Garner was the handsome leading man with flaws and imperfections. It was very easy to identify with the characters he played, because he infused humanity into the characters, and the reality that just because he may be a marquee idol, not everything was going to work out for him, much as it hasn't for the rest of us.

Over the course of his career, Garner was the master of almost happily ever after. Things may not have gone as he'd planned, but they turned out pretty darn good, and hey! Life is good, so, I guess there's hope for the rest of us! He was entertaining to watch and, as I said, easy to identify with. And he never seemed to let fame and leading man good looks go to his head. He could be the quintessential 'guy next door'. He was 86.

Rest in peace, Mr. Garner.




Maverick's debut was in 1957,
Rockford in 1974

Quote du jour

“Never did I expect a guy like this, the head of a country, to blatantly lie to your face, and then not only lie to your face, then lie about the fact that he never lied. Then lie again about the next lie he told. There used to be a time when you would worship the president, even if you didn’t like him. You knew he told the truth because he’s the president of a country. Now, he’s the only guy in America who would have the nerve to lie this much."

Stockton - In Black and White (With Red and Blue Lights)

Some small excitement this afternoon - I was driving home on Pacific Avenue when I saw a black and white police car, Code 3, pulling a u-turn, apparently the first responder to arrive on the scene of a bank robbery, blocking the parking lot and waving off a customer who was walking across the parking lot to the bank. Two more patrol cars then passed me going the other way, in the next block, and by the time I got home, I could hear a multitude of sirens. The following photo may indicate the reason why:

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
The chase, with three hostages involved and bullets flying stretched from here to nearby Lodi and back, lasting nearly an hour, finally coming to a halt about a half mile north of the bank. I count over two dozen black and whites in the photo.

Two of the three hostages were shot and released, condition unknown. Reports so far: three perps, three hostages, one person shot to death - apparently a hostage shot by the robbers. Reports have shots fired at police, striking police cars and houses of bystanders.

Will update as more details are confirmed.

Update: One suspect dead, two injured. Second fatality still not confirmed, but is assumed to be one of the hostages. No update on injuries to other two hostages 5:35 PDT

Update: According to News 10, all three suspects were shot, one fatally. Two suspects taken to hospital 5:41 PDT

Update: A bullet hole or two in the stolen getaway car... 6:27PDT

Update: According to News 10, a second suspect died of gunshot wounds 10:05 PDT

Update: As of 8AM this morning, Thornton road was still taped off and barricaded

At least 20 Stockton Police officers are on paid administrative leave after firing their weapons during Wednesday's fatal shootout

Update: Saturday 7/19 Report from Stockton Record that there may have been a fourth subject who dropped the robbers at the bank in a black sedan. Under the law, abetting a felonious death could make him eligible for the death penalty when apprehended.

Specialist Fifth Class Charles Chris Hagemeister


Citation:

For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity in action at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty. While conducting combat operations against a hostile force, Sp5c. Hagemeister's platoon suddenly came under heavy attack from 3 sides by an enemy force occupying well concealed, fortified positions and supported by machineguns and mortars. Seeing 2 of his comrades seriously wounded in the initial action, Sp5c. Hagemeister unhesitatingly and with total disregard for his safety, raced through the deadly hail of enemy fire to provide them medical aid. Upon learning that the platoon leader and several other soldiers also had been wounded, Sp5c. Hagemeister continued to brave the withering enemy fire and crawled forward to render lifesaving treatment and to offer words of encouragement. Attempting to evacuate the seriously wounded soldiers, Sp5c. Hagemeister was taken under fire at close range by an enemy sniper. Realizing that the lives of his fellow soldiers depended on his actions, Sp5c. Hagemeister seized a rifle from a fallen comrade, killed the sniper, 3 other enemy soldiers who were attempting to encircle his position and silenced an enemy machinegun that covered the area with deadly fire. Unable to remove the wounded to a less exposed location and aware of the enemy's efforts to isolate his unit, he dashed through the fusillade of fire to secure help from a nearby platoon. Returning with help, he placed men in positions to cover his advance as he moved to evacuate the wounded forward of his location. These efforts successfully completed, he then moved to the other flank and evacuated additional wounded men despite the fact that his every move drew fire from the enemy. Sp5c. Hagemeister's repeated heroic and selfless actions at the risk of his life saved the lives of many of his comrades and inspired their actions in repelling the enemy assault. Sp5c. Hagemeister's indomitable courage was in the highest traditions of the U.S. Armed Forces and reflect great credit upon himself.


Sp5c. Hagemeister: We humbly salute you and thank you for your service.
