When Heroes Were Heroes

Remember the old days when a hero was someone who pushed above the call of duty in battle and not a woman in her early 30's who aborted her baby to position herself for a new VP of Marketing role?

Leslie Charles (Clarence) Allen, MM (9 November 1916 – 11 May 1982), nicknamed "Bull" Allen, was an Australian soldier and a recipient of the United States' Silver Star.

Allen rescued wounded soldiers under fire around Crystal Creek on the 7 and 8 February 1943 for which he was awarded the Military Medal.[1] On 30 July 1943 at Mount Tambu, Allen safely rescued twelve United States soldiers[2] and was later awarded the Silver Star
