Two Stories BOTH TRUE – and worth reading!!!!
This took place on February 20, 1942 , and for that action Butch became the Navy’s first Ace of W.W.II, and the first Naval Aviator to win the Congressional Medal of Honor.

A year later Butch was killed in aerial combat at the age of 29. His home town would not allow the memory of this WW II hero to fade, and today, O’Hare Airport in Chicago is named in tribute to the courage of this great man.

So, the next time you find yourself at O’Hare International, give some thought to visiting Butch’s memorial displaying his statue and his Medal of Honor. It’s located between Terminals 1 and 2.

SO WHAT DO THESE TWO STORIES HAV! E TO DO WITH EACH OTHER?

Butch O’Hare was ‘Easy Eddie’s’ son.

(Pretty cool, eh!)

Sorry folks…Just a story about a naval pilot during WWII who redeemed the shame of his father’s life as the lawyer for Al Capone…

kat,
I was pasting the link for those interested in the story. I think snopes is leaping to conclusions about peoples motives, but I think it is best that the reader make their own determination. I hope I didn’t squash your post because that wasn’t my intention. I thought about it more after I left and realized I should have clarified why I posted the link. Sorry.

One more time, folks, I’m so sorry that I could not paste in the story, related to me in an email today…

The text is glitchy, and I was unable to copy the entire story in its entirety.
