dberg refers me to an OC Register story (genital/genital or bugmenot to read it) about Garden Grove's hometown hero, who is a genuinely admirable guy.

Anyone who picks maggots out of a prison latrine to clean the sores of his friends deserves the Medal of Honor and free beer for life. Especially when he'd already been in a Nazi death camp before he went to another war and got thrown in a prison camp again.

The army's official site about him is more descriptive of his life in combat and has background on his life and a video of him which has some very affecting testimonials from his fellow inmates.

And now he's the "Jewish Santa Claus" and gives out candy to the kids in his neighborhood.
