Vietnam vet will get Purple Heart at Props and Pistons Festival in Wadsworth
The Props and Pistons Festival, September 10 and 11 at Wadsworth Municipal Airport, will include presentation of a Purple Heart and other overdue military medals to Ravenna native Edward Paulus who was wounded in Vietnam in 1967. CLEVELAND, Ohio - Nearly 50 years after he fought and was wounded in Vietnam, Ravenna native Edward Paulus will be belatedly awarded a Purple Heart and other military medals following a 9/11 Remembrance Ceremony at the Wadsworth Props and Pistons Festival on Sept. 11. Paulus, a 1966 graduate of Field High School, was serving with the 12th Infantry regiment in 1967 when he was wounded by enemy shell during the battle for Hill 875. Recently, with the assistance from Congressman Jim Renacci and his staff, the Army Board for Correction of Military Records granted full relief to Paulus' medals  request. He was subsequently awarded the Purple Heart, Good Conduct Medal, Vietnam Service Medal (3 Bronze Stars), Republic of Vietnam Gallantry Cross with Palm Unit Citation, Republic of Vietnam Civil Actions Honor Medal First Class Unit Citation, and Expert Marksmanship Qualification Badge with Rifle and Machinegun Bars.  Ravenna native Edward Paulus will receive a Purple Heart and other military medals for his service in Vietnam. (Plain Dealer file photo)   Paulus, 69, of Mogadore, said he never got a Purple Heart for the wound he received on Hill 875, during an action he described as "just terrible." He remembered U.S. jets coming in to plaster the hill with 500-pound bombs and napalm, "then we'd go to advance up the hill, get maybe 20 yards and get pinned down, then fight like hell." Paulus said he was wounded by shrapnel. "It was one of those million-dollar wounds, like Forrest Gump" (from the 1994 movie of the same name starring Tom Hanks). "I got it in the buttocks (like Gump)," Paulus said. He said the wound was not recorded in his paperwork and he spent the next 49 years gathering enough evidence to support his claim. "The paperwork got messed up, then I finally got enough information," he said. Paulius said, in a voice cracking with emotion, that when he's finally presented with that Purple Heart, "I'll probably feel like I am now, little bit choked up. It's been 49 years of waiting, and I finally got it." Renacci said in a news release, "It has been honor working with Specialist Paulus in ensuring he received the medals he is long overdue. "His diligence in pursuing this matter is representative of the spirit in all of our American veterans," he added.  "It will be an honor to present Specialist Paulus with his Purple Heart and give him the 'Welcome Home' he did not receive almost 50 years ago." The Wadsworth Props and Pistons Festival is Sept. 10 and 11 at Wadsworth Municipal Airport, 840 Airport Drive, offering features dealing with aviation, historic aircraft, and aviation-related topics. These include aircraft displays, aerial demonstrations, airplane rides and education aviation exhibits. A show of classic cars and military vehicles also is planned. The festival has partnered with the Ohio Veterans' Memorial Park to honor police, fire, EMS and military personnel in a 9/11 remembrance ceremony during their annual 3095 ride. Admission is free. A $5 donation for parking is requested to help cover expenses.  The festival runs from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Sept. 10, and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sept. 11, with the 9/11 ceremony at noon, followed by the awarding of medals to Paulus.

Trump as 'Leader of Free World' attacks free press: Darcy cartoon
Trump and his staff have been prolific in propagating fake news, starting with Trump adopting the racist Obama 'birther' story eight years ago CLEVELAND, Ohio -- President Donald Trump, the so-called 'Leader of the Free World' escalated his attack on the free press with two repugnant tweets calling US news organizations the "enemy of the American People!" Trump first tweeted: "The FAKE NEWS media (failing @nytimes, @CNN,@NBCNews and many more) is not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American people. SICK!" That tweet was deleted and replaced 16 minutes later with this amended version: "The FAKE NEWS media (failing @nytimes, @NBCNews, @ABC,@CBS,@CNN) is not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American People!" Trump's tweets read like they could have been written by Richard Nixon at the height of Watergate or any Authoritarian and Fascist leader throughout history. "The Press is the enemy, the establishment is the enemy, the professors are the enemy."   --President Richard Nixon Carl Bernstein, who along with Bob Woodward, won the Pulitzer Prize for exposing Nixon's misdeeds, called Trump's attacks on the press "more treacherous than Nixon's." "The most dangerous 'enemy of the people is presidential lying--always.  Attacks on press by @realDonaldTrump more treacherous than Nixon's."  --Carl Bernstein On "Meet the Press" Senator John Mcain said Trump's attacks on the press are how dictators get started. "If you want to preserve democracy as we know it, you have to have a free and many times adversarial press.  And without it, I am afraid that we would lose so much of our individual liberties over time.  That's how dictators get started.   They get started by suppressing free press, in other words, consolidation of power-- when you look at history, the first thing that dictators do is shut down the press," McCain told Chuck Todd, in an interview airing today. Do Trump and Steve Bannon really want to "preserve democracy" or do they want to establish a Trumpocracy and Bannonocray? Last year, Trump's ghostwriter, Tony Schwartz,  said Trump's first move as president would be to target the free press. "On day one he would end a free press.  In any way that he could, he would use the government to shut down a free press, and listen, he has plenty of precedent for doing that, including his hero Vladimir Putin, " Schwartz told The Independent. Here is what John F. Kennedy, Teddy Roosevelt and Thomas Jefferson had to say on the topic. "Without debate, without criticism, no Administration and no country can succeed-- and no republic can survive."  --John F. Kennedy - "To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President right or wrong...is morally treasonable to the American public."  -- Theodore Roosevelt "Our liberty cannot be guarded but by the freedom of the press, nor that be limited without danger of losing it."   -- Thomas Jefferson. American journalist James Foley was beheaded by ISIS.  Does Trump think Foley is an enemy of the American people?  Would he dare say that in person to Foley's parents? While Donald Trump was getting dubious deferments to stay out of the Vietnam war and stay in New York City nightclubs, Dan Rather and plenty of other American reporters were embedded with American forces in Vietnam.   Was Rather an enemy of the American people then?  Are all the journalist who were and are embedded with American forces in Iraq, Afghanistan and Syria, enemies of the American people? The Journalist Memorial at the Newseum in Washington D.C., names 2,291 journalist who have been killed covering the news around the world. Trump can be considered an authority on 'Fake News'.   He's not only Commander-in-Chief, he's been the Editor-in-Chief of Fake News.   When Trump talks about Fake News he's talking about himself, his favorite topic.   Trump and his staff have been prolific in propagating fake news, starting with Trump adopting the racist Obama 'birther' story eight years ago. During the Republican primary, Trump spread a story about Ted Cruz's father being involved with Lee Harvey Oswald in the assassination of JFK. Since being sworn in, Trump and his staff have sworn that Trump's Inauguration crowd was the largest in history, that 3 to 4 million people voted illegally, and that Iraqi nationals carried out a massacre in Bowling Green, Kentucky. While on the National Security Advisers staff, Michael Flynn Jr, spread a fake story that Hillary Clinton and her campaign staff were running a child sex ring from the basement of a D.C. pizza parlor.   The fake story prompted a man to open fire in the pizza parlor. On Air Force One, Trump falsely reported he knew nothing about the report that Michael Flynn talked to the Russians about sanctions, and misled Vice President Mike Pence.   Trump knew the information back in January. During his chaotic press conference last week, Trump boldly bragged that he had the largest Electoral College victory in history.  The false claim was debunked in the press conference. Trump's outlandish  attacks on the press, only give more credence to what's being reported. President Trump has been consumed with trying to kill the messenger.   He needs to put that energy and effort into doing what he was elected to do -- govern, as a dignified leader of the United States, with a sound mind and principles, without denigrating its free press and without lying to the  American people. Photo from "My Vietnam Experience" blog showing 'last rites' being given to Dickey Chapelle, the first American female reporter killed in combat.Jeff Darcy, cleveland.com  The photo above is taken from Dan Rather's 2014 post on the "My Vietnam Experience" blog.   The photo shows Chaplain John McNamara administering the last rite to photojournalist Dickey Chapelle in South Vietnam on November 4, 1965.   Chapelle became the first American female reporter to be killed in action.  She was covering a U.S. Marine unit when she and four Marines were wounded by an exploding mine.   Chapelle died in the helicopter flying her to the hospital.    I've cropped the photo to not to show her face, out of respect. What was Donald Trump doing on November 4, 1965?
