    I could support the DSC but not the CMH.

    another hero passes on

    Frederick Mayer, the real “Inglorious Bastard” who served in World War II, has died. He was 94.

    Mayer, a Jewish refugee from Germany and a naturalized U.S. citizen, was recruited by the Office of Strategic Services, the World War II predecessor to the CIA. He then volunteered to lead Operation Greenup, one of the most daring and successful missions behind German lines.

    Mayer’s actions were portrayed in the award-winning documentary “The Real Inglorious Bastards,”
