Wednesday Hero Post

To post the Wednesday Hero post to your site is a bit of a bother but it's simple. Just copy the italicized text below and paste it to your site. Where you see the < character you'll notice that there's a space between it and the next character. Just do away with that space to close the tag. That's it. Like I said, a bit of a bother but simple.

Not only was Jerry Coleman a pro-baseball player, playing for the Yankees from 1949 to 1957, but he was also a Lieutenant Colonel in the United States Marines. Coleman postponed his entry in to the MLB to join the Marines. He flew 120 missions in WWII and Korea and earned two Distinguished Flying Crosses and thirteen Air Medals.< /center>< /I>

These brave men and women sacrifice so much in their lives just so others may get to enjoy freedom. For that I am proud to call them Hero. < FONT COLOR=red>< FONT SIZE=2>Those Who Say That We're In A Time When There Are No Heroes, They Just Don't Know Where To Look< /FONT SIZE>< /FONT COLOR> < b>This post is part of the Wednesday Hero Blogroll.

Thanks for the post- very sad, very emotional, very gut wrenching. I am glad I can honor them on my blog.
