My father, Bernard L. Gregory enlisted in the Service after Pearl Harbor, he joined the 101st Airborne, The Screaming Eagles, and jump on D Day in Normandy, he fought in the Battle of the Bulge, when the Commander told the Nazi Commander who had our troops surrounded and asked to surrender by the Nazi commander, “NUTS”, here is the US ARMY official details: This is the English version of the message: "December 22nd 1944 To the U.S.A. Commander of the encircled town of Bastogne. The fortune of war is changing. This time the U.S.A. forces in and near Bastogne have been encircled by strong German armored units. More German armored units have crossed the river Our the near Ortheuville, have taken Marche and reached St. Hubert by passing through Hompre-Sibret-Tillet. Libramont is in German hands. There is only one possibility to save the encircled U.S.A troops from total annihilation: that is the honorable surrender of the encircled town. In order to think it over a term of two hours will be granted beginning with the presentation of this note. If this proposal should be rejected one German Artillery Corps and six heavy A. A. Battalions are ready to annihilate the U.S.A. troops in and near Bastogne. The order for firing will be given immediately after this two hours’ term. All the serious civilian losses caused by this artillery fire would not correspond with the wellknown American humanity. The German Commander." The Division Operations Officer, Lt. Col. Harry Kinnard recalled that McAulliffe initially asked, "They want to surrender?" Moore told him, "No sir, they want us to surrender." McAulliffe arose and erupted in anger, which shocked those looking on. He took the paper, looked at it, said "Us surrender, aw nuts!" and dropped it on the floor. Maj. Jones was dismissed. McAulliffe then left the Headquarters to go congratulate a unit on the Western perimeter that had successfully taken out a German road block earlier that morning. When Jones left the Headquarters, he went back to the F Company Command Post and spoke with the two German officers. When he returned to his Regimental Headquarters, he phoned the division headquarters. Upon returning to the division headquarters, McAulliffe was informed that Jones had phoned to say that the two German officers were still waiting at the F Company Command Post. Since they brought a formal demand they felt they were entitled to a formal reply and they were to return to the German lines two hours after delivering their message. McAulliffe asked that Col. Harper be summoned to the Division Headquarters. Harper, who was still inspecting his units’ positions, was contacted by radio. When Harper arrived at the Headquarters, he was asked to wait outside of the closed door to McAulliffe’s quarters. Inside, in the presence of his staff, McAulliffe wondered aloud, "Well, I don’t know what to tell them." At that point, Kinnard said, "What you said initially would be hard to beat." McAulliffe asked "What do you mean?" Kinnard, said, "Sir, you said nuts." All members of the staff enthusiastically agreed, so McAulliffe wrote it down on a message pad and said, "Have it typed up." The reply was typed up, centered on a full sheet of paper. It read: "December 22, 1944 To the German Commander, N U T S ! The American Commander" Our family military experience doesn’t not end there, after the Irag invasion of Kuwait Iraqi president Saddam Hussein ordered the invasion and occupation of neighboring Kuwait in early August 1990. Alarmed by these actions, fellow Arab powers such as Saudi Arabia and Egypt called on the United States and other Western nations to intervene. Hussein defied United Nations Security Council demands to withdraw from Kuwait by mid-January 1991, and the Persian Gulf War began with a massive U.S.-led air offensive known as Operation Desert Storm. After 42 days of relentless attacks by the allied coalition in the air and on the ground, U.S. President George H.W. Bush declared a cease-fire on February 28; by that time, most Iraqi forces in Kuwait had either surrendered or fled. Though the Persian Gulf War was initially considered an unqualified success for the international coalition, simmering conflict in the troubled region led to a second Gulf War–known as the Iraq War–that began in 2003. My son James Gregory, joined the Army, he was not sent sent overseas during Desert Storm, Zachary Gregory was in Irag after the fall of the Twin Towers and served 16 months over there and my grandson Mark Gregory who joined the Marines and served two 8 months tours in Iraq. They all are in this video at the National Cemetery in Bushnell, FL David Gregory

I believe in AMERICA, I believe in AMERICAN VALUES, and Americans are the greatest people on earth! We’ve always risen to the occasion, whether it is militarily or aid for natural disasters! Knowing right from wrong seems to be in everyone’s makeup even when the propaganda machines try to make it not so, yet there are those who choose to ignore the natural laws. Most Americans respect and love this country, would die for it and have died for it, yet there are those who only give lip service to our flag, our nation, our people, while they plot to circumvent the laws, break the laws and con the people, it is these people that put a stain on all of us, it is these people who degrade all of us while degrading our form of government and it is these people who degrade the brave men and women who have fought and died to preserve our freedoms given us through the Constitution and all the laws derived from it. We as a nation have weathered many storms, we as Citrus County Citizens have done the same, but the cream of the crop has not always risen to the top, for difficult times it has taken straightforward talk, telling it like it is, to stir those who have lost faith in the system and in themselves, to stir them to the belief that they too can have a piece of the pie, they too can participate in a fair and balanced government, that they too do not have to be the wealthiest to clean a dirty house! Divide and conquer is the underlying theme of today’s world both on the national scene and local scene, it’s all a game to many, while laughing, mocking and betraying the trust of the people who have elected them. I’ve seen it first hand and it disgusts me as I’m sure it does you! This is not what our forefathers fought for nor it is what our brave men and women who have fought countless wars for, as the Nation is torn with the proceedings in Washington, Citrus is torn with those who thumb their noses at you the voters while making a mockery of our local government and those elected who followed the laws of the land.

Make no mistake my fellow Citizens; those who violate the laws of the land will have no place in my administration!

Homosassa man to seek District 2 Commission seat

By Norm Wagy

David Gregory, a former local businessman, has filed papers with the County Board of Elections to run for the county commission seat currently held by Ron Kitchen, Jr.

He will seek the office as an NPA (No Party Affiliation) candidate in the general election to be held on November 6th.

Mr. Gregory, a native of Sudbury, VT, moved to Citrus County in 1978. For some 16 years, he owned and operated Liberty Delivery Services. After closing that business, he worked for the Citrus County Appraisers office as a field appraiser for 14 years.

While he attended Castleton University and following his graduation, he owned and operated a small general store and gas station in Whiting, Vermont.

With his announced intention to seek office, he must acquire 1,057 supporters to sign petitions on his behalf. A fund raising campaign will be underway soon.

Though he has never held a political office, he said he was inspired to run by a number of residents who have expressed dissatisfaction with the current board, especially on the matter of water rates in the county. He says he will bring business experience to the board.

He is also concerned about medical marijuana. He believes many local residents would benefit by having it readily available in the county. He faults the county for not acting to facilitate that.

In November, 2016, 71 percent of the Florida voters approved Amendment Two which required new laws to be drafted to make the substance available to more patients.

The legislature enacted legislation which became effective on January 1, 2017, Gregory recalls that 52,398 Citrus County residents voted in favor of the amendment; 27,010 were opposed. To him, that represents a clear mandate for the County Commission to respond.

Gregory and his wife, Corl, have three grown children, eleven grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.

 

 

EOC Note: Mr. Gregory will have a web presence on our site and will soon have petitions available online and drop off locations for signed petitions on both sides of the county!

Donations help buy van

By Nancy Kennedy courtesy Citrus Chronicle rest of the story here 

CRYSTAL RIVER — For David Gregory, his “new” 1999 eggplant-purple Plymouth Voyager van is like driving a sports car.

David Gregory is the proud owner of a much-needed van with a hoist to lift his motorized chair. Gregory has osteogenesis imperfecta, or “brittle bone disease.”</div><div class="buy-pic"><a href="http://www.lcni5.com/cgi-bin/c2newbuyphoto.cgi?pub=071&amp;orig=0812%2BNZ_van_donation.jpg" target="_new">Buy this photo</a></div>

Thanks to the generosity of the community, David Gregory is the proud owner of a much-needed van with a hoist to lift his motorized chair. Gregory has osteogenesis imperfecta, or “brittle bone disease.”

“I used to say my other one was the ‘Starship Enterprise’ — whenever I took off in it, it was an adventure,” he said. “I never knew if I’d make it to my destination. With this one, I like the whole concept of it because it’s compact. It’s a lot easier than my other one.

Born with osteogenesis imperfecta (“brittle bone disease”), Gregory had had more than 80 broken bones, has spent weeks in traction and has undergone surgeries to have steel rods implanted in his legs. He spends most of his days in a motorized chair. Rest of the story click here.
