Notes from JWR:

Today is the birthday of USMC Sergeant Major Daniel Joseph Daly (born 1873, died April 27, 1937.) He was one of only nineteen men (including seven Marines) to twice receive the Medal of Honor.

This is also the birthday of Corporal John Alan Coey (died 19 July 1975.) He was the first American volunteer killed in Rhodesia’s Bush War.

Today we present a guest article from journalist Chuck Holton. SurvivalBlog readers will recognize Chuck’s name from the recent segment that he produced about The American Redoubt, for The 700 Club, on CBN.
