Explanation: Yep! It's a FACT! Here is why...

WW2 US military decorated Hero: Hitler (purple heart!
) [wiki]


WW2 US military decorated Hero: Goering (earned rank of Captain!

Personal Disclosure: So next time you hear or see something disparaging associated with either of those names, you now have the information that clearly goes to the contrary!

You've got the nephews mixed up with the war criminals.

William Patrick Stuart-Houston was a NEPHEW of Adolf Hitler. He joned the U.S. Navy in 1944 and served until 1947. He was not decorated for anything. See your own Wiki link.

Werner G. Goering was a NEPHEW of the German Luftwaffe Commander Hermann Goering. He flew bomber missions over Nazi Germany for the United States.

According to the link you provided:


However, the AAF still assigned him a "uniquely qualified" co-pilot—First Lt. Jack P. Rencher. Rencher was given orders to shoot him if he ever tried to land in Germany. According to Rencher, however, the only time young Göring was not eager to rain destruction on Nazi Germany was when he had to bomb Cologne, where his grandmother lived. "He was neat, clean, a sharp dresser and in every sense military minded", Rencher said.


Fortunately we live in a country where the relatives of our enemies are still welcomed and given the chance to serve.

They were decorated in WWI, Goerring was a highly decorated aviator i believe he earned the coveted "Blue Max." If memory serves me Adolph Hitler won the Iron Cross.
