I know there are those that don’t like to say these guys were part of the Greatest Generation because they think it disparages our current Generation of Fighting men, but just compare real quick in your mind what a friggin 92 year old dude just did with what most 20 somethings would have done in this situation…I can give you a quick for instance: Most of the 20 somethings would have sued 911 afterwards for not being fast enough to their rescue versus taking care of business like this 92 year old just did! Yeah, we owe this generation so much folks!! They literally saved our asses with their grit and determination.
A 92-year-old WWII veteran from Tulsa, OK gave a knife-wielding home invader the shock of a lifetime when he knocked the robber senseless during an attempted armed robbery. Mark Curtis, the tough as nails WWII vet, was trying to enjoy a sunny afternoon in his front yard when he was approached by a degenerate looking to make a quick buck.
Curtis said the man demanded his money while brandishing a knife. Curtis, rather than getting scared, was immediately infuriated by the young punk’s brazen robbery. He grabbed the man by the arm, receiving several non-life threatening stab wounds in the process, and punched him so hard that the man tumbled backwards out of his driveway and immediately took off running.
Nice! Once a badass, always a badass!
