A Long Over Due Medal of Honor

Recommended Posts


I read his story, then was looking at the pictures when I came across the one of the honor guard holding his medal...it sent a chill down my spine. :salute:

It always amazes me how long it takes those who issue these recognitions to honour people who should have had the award given to them when they were alive. We had the same thing here recently with recognition to the lasses who flew the spits, hurricanes and all sorts of other aircraft from factories to airfields all over the country in WWII without any navigatiuon aids. Many lost their lives flying in bad weather and crashing but it's taken over half a century to have this recognised. I guess there are many others we will never know about and this is sad.
