ever hear of Ira Hayes?

today i received an email from a co worker reminding me of Ira Hayes.

there have been films and songs writen about him.

there is a well known dc memorial where he is immortablized.

he served in the marine corps, (semper fi!) and he died before 1956 or so.

"I was sick. I guess I was about to crack up thinking about my good buddies. They were all better men than me and they're not coming back. Much less back to the White House, like me."

when he returned from the war, he was arrested for drunkenness something like 50 times.
