During WWII, he enlisted in the United States Army.  He fought on many fronts rising through the ranks, when he was discharged he was a Colonel.  He died in New York City in 1967, he was 70.

What you may not know about Edward is that he was the only person to win a gold medal at both the Summer and Winter Olympic Games in different disciplines.  In the summer games he won the medal in boxing, in the winter games in four-man bobsledding, in 1920 and 1932 respectively.

Each Friday I have my one beer of the week at a bar called Sports On Tap. They always have the Mixed Martial Arts on several of their TV's. It makes me miss the days that the men in our family would look forward to seeing Caucus Clay, Smoken Joe, and other greats box. This MMA stuff is just to barbaric to me. Have a GREAT Thanksgiving James Dray .

I never knew that someone had won medals in both the summer and winter Olympic Games. I knew it was possible but I wasn't aware of it. Thank you 

Happy Thanksgiving from my family to yours James Dray

Hi James- that is really interesting. How amazing to go to the Olympics in more than one discipline but to medal as well is quite an achievement.

Hi James:

There aren't too many people who have been able to compete in both the Winter and Summer Olympic games I don't believe, and not with the success he had!
