[..] 'Maggie' had been visiting her SF 'heroes' out 'west'. We took off, short of fuel, and headed to the USAF hospital pad at Pleiku. As we all started unloading our sad pax's, a  USAF Captain said to Martha.... "Ms Raye, with all these dead and wounded to process, there would not be time for your show!"

To all of our surprise, she pulled on her right collar and said ...... "Captain, see this eagle?  I am a full 'Bird' in the US Army Reserve, and on this is a 'Caduceus' which means I am a Nurse, with a surgical specialty.... now, take me to your wounded!"
He said, "Yes ma'am.... follow me." [... Full]

Writing in Righteous Indignation, Breitbart noted that, “the left doesn’t win its battles in debate. It doesn’t have to. In the 21st century, media is everything. The left wins because it controls the narrative. The narrative is controlled by the media. The left is the media and narrative is everything.”

To be quite fair about it, her rank and SF titles were honorary, but well-deserved.

She did enjoy, however, a reputation of being generally disliked by many of her Hollywood peers, so there's that.

I am retired Army Special Forces, Colonel Maggie is legendary in our circles. She gave up lots of her civilian career to be with SF units in Vietnam.

She supposedly held a Commission in the U.S. Army Reserves as a Nurse. She was the only "Honorary Green Beret" and designated a LTC by President Johnson.

She served lots of time in the field with Special Forces usually at FOB's and spent much time tending too and caring for wounded soldiers and earned the respect of anyone who had contact with her.

I am also a member of the "Special Forces Association" which has Chapters worldwide. One of those Chapters are named in Honor of Colonel Maggie.

The Martha Raye Chapter XXVII is located in St. Louis, Missouri.

Here is their website: www.stlouisgreenberets.com

This Honor is usually reserved for Medal of Honor Winners. Which should tell you the high regard "WE" hold Colonel Maggie in.
