    Does anyone know who this soldier is? I would like to know the story behind this picture and what unit he was with. This guy had true grit!

    Photo crops up on pinterest with caption 13 Jul 1944: T/Sgt. Meredith Rogers with his sniper-damaged helmet.

    Have no idea how accurate that is.

    His smiling face reminds me of a quote:

    There is nothing more exhilarating than to be shot at without result.
    ​ - Winston Churchill

    And this more recent variation:

    There's nothing better than getting shot at and missed. It's really great.
