The bottom notes on this last update reminded me that I used to also own the site DieForAllah.com which would be much more relevant now than it was then. I think I mostly just had it for the email and had an ASCII drawing of an Uzi up. Here it is on the WayBackMachine from 2002:

Oh neat it looks like the domain still exists and isn’t being squatted upon. Should we get it and redirect it here?

Tibor Rubin, 86, Medal of Honor winner; Holocaust survivor who joined the US Army and fought in Korea.   Quick version: His sergeant was an anti-semite who sent him on dangerous missions hoping he would be killed, instead he kicked the shit out of everyone.  Two officers told the Sergeant to do the paperwork to get him a Medal of Honor, but the Sergeant ignored them and the officers were KIA.  Then Tibor was captured, spent a couple years in a Chinese POW camp, used to sneak out at night and steal food from the Chinese/NorK supply depots and bring it back for the other prisoners.  Finally received the MoH in 2005.

Fucks given: 10

George T. Sakato, 94, Congressional Medal of Honor winner; fought with the 442nd Regimental Combat Team (the one made up mostly of Japanese-Americans) in WWII.

Fucks Given: 17, one per Nazi he killed on 29 October 1944:

After his platoon had virtually destroyed two enemy defense lines, during which he personally killed five enemy soldiers and captured four, his unit was pinned down by heavy enemy fire. Disregarding the enemy fire, Private Sakato made a one-man rush that encouraged his platoon to charge and destroy the enemy strongpoint. While his platoon was reorganizing, he proved to be the inspiration of his squad in halting a counter-attack on the left flank during which his squad leader was killed. Taking charge of the squad, he continued his relentless tactics, using an enemy rifle and P-38 pistol to stop an organized enemy attack. During this entire action, he killed 12 and wounded two, personally captured four and assisted his platoon in taking 34 prisoners. By continuously ignoring enemy fire, and by his gallant courage and fighting spirit, he turned impending defeat into victory and helped his platoon complete its mission. Private Sakato’s extraordinary heroism and devotion to duty are in keeping with the highest traditions of military service and reflect great credit on him, his unit, and the United States Army.
