Thanks to everyone who's ever visited Their Finest Hour and enjoyed the content I've provided. I'm looking forward to bigger and better things over at the new site, adding some contributors (stay tuned!) and providing a whole lot more for readers (and listeners) to enjoy!

When I started this blog in 2006, I don't think I ever really expected anyone to read it, much less that it would lead to me visiting the White House as a reporter and becoming a new media broadcast personality! Thanks all, and we'll see you at the new site!

TFH 3/4: Sergeant Troy A. McGill, USA

Troy A. McGill was born on July 15, 1917 in Knoxville, Tennessee. He later lived in Oklahoma, and it was from that state that he enlisted in the United States Army on November 6, 1940 at age 23. He was put into the Army's cavalry branch, and became a member of the 5th Cavalry Regiment, 1st Cavalry Division.

As militaries became more mechanized after the Nazi blitzkrieg swept over and occupied Europe, horse cavalry was deemphasized and the 1st Cavalry Division was reformed as a light infantry unit. They were trained and equipped for jungle warfare, and in that role, were dispatched for combat in the Pacific in the summer of 1943.
