Advance and be recognized

My father-in-law, John Zubek, fought in World War II.

He only ever shared two things:

  1. Shoot or be shot at.
  2. Advance and be recognized.

The first thing he shared was because i pried for some sort of wisdom from him before he died and it would be lost forever.

The second thing he shared, can’t recall the context on why it was shared, other than there were scary times when you didn’t know who was nearby. And the only way to verify it was to ask the person you couldn’t see to, “Advance and be recognized.“
