Stamp recognizes cartoonist Bill Mauldin, High Rolls native son
#1 Mar 24, 2010
A very fitting memorial. Bill Mauldin's portrayal of the average American G.I.s "Willie" and "Joe" during WWII are the essence of irreverent American humor that sets us apart from the crowd. He stood up to George Patton and told it like it was. If you have not read his book "The Brass Ring", check it out. It tells the story of an ordinary guy from High Rolls and includes his family and brother Sid in an entertaining and enlightening tale of free speech as it played out during WWII.
A great patriot, a good soldier, and he knew of what he spoke.
