Notwithstanding all of our brave fighting men and women, two captains of late have exhibited the true American spirt. I only hope that Gen Whatever is watching and learning. Our first captain successfully crashed landed his aircraft in a river, saving his passengers and crew. He was last to leave the plane. The other captain was first to leave his ship, to save it and his crew. And he twice set up rescue attempts at his own peril. Neither claimed any credit. Just doing their job they’d say. The American Spirit is still alive and well. It’s just not reported on until something extraordinary happens that can’t be avoided by the Main Street Media.
