Badass Report: PFC Michale Perkins

Another Badass report! On this date during WWI in 1918 in France, PFC Michale Perkins of the 101st Infantry, voluntarily and alone crawled to a German “pill box” machinegun emplacement, from which grenades were being thrown at his platoon. Awaiting his opportunity, when the door was again opened and another grenade thrown, he threw a bomb inside, bursting the door open, and then, drawing his trench knife, he rushed the emplacement and in hand-to-hand combat he killed and wounded several of the occupants and captured about 25 prisoners, at the same time silencing 7 machineguns. – One man with a knife killing several and capturing 25!! – a true badass!

Badass Report: Lt Col George Mabry

Another Badass Report! On this day Nov 20th, 1944, Lt Col George Mabry, US Army, 4th ID, in the Hurtgen Forest, earned the Medal of Honor. Early in an assault his men were halted by a minefield combined with heavy enemy fire. Alone he entered the minefield and found a safe route through. Then ahead of all his men Col Mabry cut through the concertina wire and disabled the explosive boobytraps in it. He then alone charged and captured 3 enemy foxholes with his bayonet! Moving again ahead of his men, he captured 3 log bunkers, killing 9 German enemies in hand to hand combat with the butt of his rifle or bayonet. He then charged the main bunker, killing 6 more Nazis with his bayonet. From this captured high ground he and his men were able to open the approach to Cologne for allied forces. Crossing minefields, repeatedly bayoneting enemies, and never stopping, shows Col Mabry’s superlative courage, daring, and leadership, and earned him the Medal of Honor, making him a true badass!

Historical note, and another Badass Report: Maj Bruce Crandall

Another Badass Report:

On this day, Nov 14th, 1965, regular US forces and regular NVA forces met in the first major engagement of the Vietnam war. Portrayed in the book and movie “We Were Soldiers”, Col Harold Moore and the 7th Cav battled relentlessly in the Ia Drang valley. Of the 500 men originally sent in, 416 were killed or wounded. Many badasses were present in this battle, one standout being helicopter pilot Maj. Bruce Crandall who was awarded the Medal of Honor for choosing to fly in and out of a landing zone which had been closed due to extreme NVA fire targeting it. All through the night he delivered ammo and brought out the wounded at total disregard for his own safety. He made 22 flights that day and night all under intense enemy fire, and truly earned the Medal of Honor and was a true badass.

Badass Report: Prvt 1st Class Ralph Dias.

Another Badass Report!

Private 1st Class Ralph E. Dias of USMC 7th Marines, 1st Marine Division, earned the Medal of Honor on Nov 12th 1969 at Que Son in Vietnam. He and his unit were pinned down and sustaining casualties, so Dias got up and charged alone toward the enemy machinegun bunker. We was shot while running and crawled behind a rock. Catching his breath, he ran closer again, and was shot a second time! Unable to walk, he continued to crawl a third time across the open to get near the enemy. After tossing some grenades he realized he was not close enough, and out of sheer determination crawled out again to get closer and was shot yet again. As he threw his last grenades, they found their mark and destroyed the enemy machinegun. He was then shot yet again and died of his wounds. He gallantly gave his life in the service to his country and the traditions of the Marine Corp, and was a true badass.
