My Hero lyrics

too alarming now to talk about
take your pictures down
and shake it out
truth or consequence, say it aloud
use that evidence race it around
Foo Fighters; One of my Fav Bands; Hero Song; However Ed is NO ORDINARY MAN!! RATHER EXTRODINARDY!! Definately A Hero!! Kudos!!
Chorus:
there goes my hero
watch him as he goes
there goes my hero
he’s ordinary

don’t the best of them bleed it out
[| From: http://www.elyrics.net/read/f/foo-fighters-lyri... |]
while the rest of them peter out
truth or consequence, say it aloud
use that evidence race it around

(chorus)

kudos my hero
leaving all the best
you know my hero
the one that’s all

Lunch with a HERO event June 4, 2011
The Mess Tent Cafe’ @ Oxman’s Surplus
Featured:
PFC Ed “Doc” Pepping
101st Airborne 506th PIR/2nd Bat. Easy Co. Medic. Band of Brothers

Bronze Star Recipient Ed “Doc” Pepping jumped into Normandy on D-day as a Medic with the famed Easy Co.

Even though Ed was injured himself he gave aid to his fellow soldiers in such historic places as Dead Man’s Corner and Eglise de agoville-au-Plain.

Ed shared lunch with local citizens as well as other Veterans and Heros in a pre – D-Day event held @ Oxman’s Surplus.

I was honored to have listed to his captivating tales and historical commentary on his life experiences.

He is still a humble and generous man and continues to serve this country at age 88 years old!

He will be visiting soldiers @ The Walter Reed Memorial next week. I am sure any moments visit with this man is an ispiration and will be healing to all those whom have this opportunity.

Inspired by Mr. “O” and His museum to create a place like this to HONOR our heros and have a place to coninue to have children come and learn about the history of our men and women who served this country!

Well Done Hero!! Thanks for the invite Jason, Murry and Mr & Mrs “O”.

Honored to meet you Ed ! Welcome Home and Thankful for my FREEDOM!!

    The picture of the man and the painting on the wall make a beautiful picture. Our WWII vets are dying off quickly. I read that the oldest living WWI vet died a couple of weeks ago. This is a great tribute to that generation. I remember eating in the mess tent when deployed. I don’t think I could do that now. LOL

  • Hi Lori,
    Thank you! I am actually printing it and taking it to the Oxman family today. Ed and Jeromoe; Mr. “O” go back a way. It will become part of the museum I am sure. What an honor to be part of this living history day @ the museum he and his family have created just a hop step and jump from my home (-:
