GOD Bless You New Jersey's Nicolas Oresko, a Registered Republican! !~A.D. 10/11/2013 You were buried yesterday a.d. 10/10/2013 Thursday.** ****** **Oresko had no immediate family. His wife Jean died in 1980. His son Robert died in 2010."He was the Fred Astaire of the Medal of Honor Society," Bob Jerome, who carried Oresko's Medal of Honor Thursday, "He was one of the most amazing dancers that you'd ever want to see."Lt. Gen. Robert L. Caslen Jr., superintendent of the United States Military Academy at West Point, speaking on behalf of the Secretary and Defense and Chief of Staff of the Army, echoed those thoughts."Sir," he said, "we hope in your eyes we have earned what you have done for us."**********************A Tornado struck a.d. 10/09/2013 and lots of trees were uprooted and large branches down in Paramus at the George Washington Cem., Oradell, and close by . A level One tornado which in N. New Jersey never usually occurs.All US and State Flags are to be at Half Mast today in your Honor!. ::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::ORESKO, NICHOLAS Rank and organization: Master Sergeant, U.S. Army, Company C, 302d Infantry, 94th Infantry Division Place and date: Near Tettington, Germany, 23 January 1945 Entered service at: Bayonne, N.J. G.O. No.: 95, 30 October 1945Citation: M/Sgt. Oresko was a platoon leader with Company C, in an attack against strong enemy positions. Deadly automatic fire from the flanks pinned down his unit. Realizing that a machinegun in a nearby bunker must be eliminated, he swiftly worked ahead alone, braving bullets which struck about him, until close enough to throw a grenade into the German position. He rushed the bunker and, with pointblank rifle fire, killed all the hostile occupants who survived the grenade blast. Another machinegun opened up on him, knocking him down and seriously wounding him in the hip. Refusing to withdraw from the battle, he placed himself at the head of his platoon to continue the assault. As withering machinegun and rifle fire swept the area, he struck out alone in advance of his men to a second bunker. With a grenade, he crippled the dug-in machinegun defending this position and then wiped out the troops manning it with his rifle, completing his second self-imposed, 1-man attack. Although weak from loss of blood, he refused to be evacuated until assured the mission was successfully accomplished. Through quick thinking, indomitable courage, and unswerving devotion to the attack in the face of bitter resistance and while wounded, M /Sgt. Oresko killed 12 Germans, prevented a delay in the assault, and made it possible for Company C to obtain its objective with minimum casualties.http://www.history.army.mil/html/moh/wwII-m-s.html:::::: He was hospitalized at ( Under-Par) Englewood Hospital and Medical Center in New Jersey after he fell and hurt himself at his assisted living center, according to CT Post. He died at 6:30 p.m. from complications from surgery of a broken right femur the same leg injured in his heroic 1945 assault.Funeral arrangements were held in Paramus as well, he is buried now on Thursday a.d. 10/10/2013 at George Washington Cemetery in Paramus, Bergen County N.J..- Jonathan Robert De Mallie
