Jefferson DeBlanc, Coon-Ace ! Dogfights: Guadalcanal 2 of 2

default Jefferson DeBlanc, Coon Ace ! Dogfights: Guadalcanal 2 of 2

I saw the original post of this segment and it did not include the entire segment. Here is the entire segment in 2 parts, especially since someone commented on the validity of JD’s Medal of Honor In honor of Jefferson DeBlanc WWII Dogfighting Ace Medal of Honor Winner Fellow COON ASS !!! (Coon-Ass = Cajun in Louisiana and we are proud to be called so, for all you yankees & rednecks that want to cry racism) Catch “Dogfights” on “The History Channel”. It really is an excellent show

    “I’m not a hero, but I have to live with my conscience. And if I didn’t do what I was supposed to do then I’m derelict in my duty.”
    That is perhaps the most inspiring quote I have ever read.
    Jeff Deblanc—my hero

    He says ” I looked at him and he looked at me and I could recognize that man today, and you’ll say “you’re crazy man”, well but when you kill somebody during war and you see them, you’ll witness what i’m talking about”.

    This man defines “hero.”  There should be monuments to him in every city. Absolutely amazing human being.

    I love to talk to old WWII and Korea marines; they all seem to have the same dignity and sense of duty as Col. DeBlanc.

    I never got to meet the man, but my grandfather Harry “bay” Thibideuax was another student of his. after i graduated last yr i spent 2 eks in henderson La. w/ my gradfather at his bros house. i’m a rowdy boy from Illinois but uncle Ray was right, i got a little cajun cookin from an sum bayou water in my belly. i dont think i ever left there in fact if id had done like they told me “oh boy we gunna have to call yo’ mama and say we gotcho a lil cajun queen and you never comin back”

    “I’m not a hero, but I have to live with my conscience. And if I didn’t do what I was supposed to do then I’m derelicting my duty.”
    The definition of a hero.

    Mr. “D” (as we called him) was my physics and geometry teacher at the AFCENT Int’l school in the late 70s. Dr. DeBlanc was quite a colorful teacher! Sadly, he passed away in late 2007. He will be missed.

    The History Channel’s Dogfight series is one of the best informative and entertaining series on television today. I just checked out about 12 episodes on Netflix and I thought they were fantastic. The reenactments using computer graphics lend’s itself well and hearing the first hand accounts from the pilots themselves adds to the package. I would like to own the entire series on DVD if they are available. 5 stars to the brave men and women of combat aviation. I salute you all.
