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.
