Col Kenneth Reusser, Marine Aviation Legend, Dies At Age 89

A Marine who fought in 3 wars and was a true legend has passed away.

Reusser was awarded 59 medals during his career, including two Navy Crosses, four Purple Hearts and two Legions of Merit. He retired from the service a colonel, The Associated Press and Oregon media reported.

He was shot down five times during 259 combat missions in World War II, the Korean War and Vietnam — at least once in each conflict.

Amazingly, they still make Marines like this.

Semper Fi Col. Reusser and God speed.
