Tom Landry, great coach and WW2 hero
On the field, Tom Landry's numbers were second to none. However, most people don't know about his military service in World War II:
"After just one year with the Longhorns, Landry headed to Europe for World War II where he flew 30 missions as a B-17 pilot with the Air Force. "
Landry died from leukemia in 2000. However, his name is all over Cowboys' history.
