Today, the Supreme Court is hearing the case of the Mississippi law that bans most abortions after 15 weeks. If this is allowed to stand, it would change the impact of Roe v. Wade across this country. Jerry Prevo, the President of Liberty University, and 1,000 students went to the Capitol today to stand in support of life and pray for the Justices inside hearing the case. I appreciate them, Students for Life of America, and all the others there in defense of the unborn. Maybe you couldn’t be in Washington today, but would you stop and pray that the Supreme Court will rule to protect and value the unborn?

Republican Glenn Youngkin wins Virginia governor's race

Glenn Youngkin decisively won the election Tuesday night, a massive victory for the GOP after more than a decade of political losses in the state, and an indication of significant discontent with President Biden and momentum for the Republican Party nationwide ahead of next year’s midterms.

A real American hero.

A real American hero.

🇺🇲WWII uncovered: Once Called a One-Man Army... Now Honored with the Highest Decoration of the US Military

"You're a one man army," said a beachhead General to Pfc Alton W. Knappenberger, 20, Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, shown here cleaning his fondest possession, an automatic rifle. With it, he neutralized approximately 40 enemy combatants. Along with two soldiers (killed in this action) 'Knapp' (now single-handedly) fired 600 rounds of ammo returned for more- then stopped more Germans, including an officer and 7 men who ordered him to surrender during the Battle of Cisterna in Italy. Pfc Knappenberger served in the 30th Infantry Regiment, 3rd Infantry Division. (Source: arlingtoncemetery.net)

⭐Private First Class Knappenberger's official Medal of Honor Citation reads:

For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty in action involving actual conflict with the enemy, on February 1, 1944, near Cisterna di Littoria, Italy. When a heavy German counterattack was launched against his battalion, Pfc. Knappenberger crawled to an exposed knoll and went into position with his automatic rifle. An enemy machinegun 85 yards away opened fire, and bullets struck within 6 inches of him. Rising to a kneeling position, Pfc. Knappenberger opened fire on the hostile crew, knocked out the gun, killed 2 members of the crew, and wounded the third. While he fired at this hostile position, 2 Germans crawled to a point within 20 yards of the knoll and threw potato-masher grenades at him, but Pfc. Knappenberger killed them both with 1 burst from his automatic rifle. Later, a second machinegun opened fire upon his exposed position from a distance of 100 yards, and this weapon also was silenced by his well-aimed shots. Shortly thereafter, an enemy 20mm. antiaircraft gun directed fire at him, and again Pfc. Knappenberger returned fire to wound 1 member of the hostile crew. Under tank and artillery shellfire, with shells bursting within 15 yards of him, he held his precarious position and fired at all enemy infantrymen armed with machine pistols and machine-guns which he could locate. When his ammunition supply became exhausted, he crawled 15 yards forward through steady machinegun fire, removed rifle clips from the belt of a casualty, returned to his position and resumed firing to repel an assaulting German platoon armed with automatic weapons. Finally, his ammunition supply being completely exhausted, he rejoined his company. Pfc. Knappenberger's intrepid action disrupted the enemy attack for over 2 hours.

Knappenberger was then promoted to Staff Sergeant. His Medal of Honor Ceremony was held on May 26, 1944.

Alton returned to Pennsylvania after the war. He owned a potato farm and later changed careers; working for a blacktop pavement company. Knappenberger was also an avid hunter. Alton passed on June 9, 2008 at the age of 84. Lest We Forget.

History Uncovered

Gunnery Sergeant John Basilone was the only Marine to receive both the Medal of Honor and the Navy Cross during World War II. At the Battle of Guadalcanal, Basilone singlehandedly defended a narrow pass against a force over 3,000 Japanese.

Afterward, he was offered a safer training position. However, he turned it down in favor of going back into action at Iwo Jima, where he gave his life on the battlefield.
