Having had the great honor of knowing the most recent (before this) Medal of Honor winner, I can attest to the fact that they are a great asset to our military and to our country.

Well done, sir! I salute you.

I think Congressmen should wear uniforms like NASCAR drivers, so we could identify their corporate sponsors.

I salute this sergeant and all of his buddies over there.

They ARE just doing their duty, and they normally get blessed little recognition for it, too. We have to remember one thing about them; they are all volunteers! They weren't drafted, no one MADE them go there and fight. That shouts volumes about the courage and quality of these troops. Not that there weren't draftees who performed as heroes in prior wars, there were. It's just that, somehow, WANTING to be there, putting themselves in harms way, makes their accomplishments that much more dear to all of us, I think. They felt the call, served their country honorably and in an exemplary manner, and they certainly deserve any and all the recognition they get. If not for them I hate to think where America would be today.

Learn from the mistakes of others. Life is too short to make them all yourself.

I've had the privilege of meeting and speaking to two MOH winners from the Vietnam war. Both of them claimed the exact same thing.

"I just did what needed to be done. Anybody could have done that."

These guys are humble, unselfish and devoted to the men around them and their duty to the point where there is a reason so many Medals of Honor are awarded posthumously.

Per military regulations, senior officers and all enlisted are required to salute the Medal of Honor, including Four Star Generals and Admirals.

It's a whole different level of putting it on the line.

You have my salute, Sergeant.

A truly beautiful soul and a true American Hero.

"A wise and frugal government, which shall leave men free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned - this is the sum of good government."

"I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them. "
Thomas Jefferson

Well it's finally happened. A soldier in Afghanastan was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor for an act of bravery and selflessness during combat. God Bless this Soldier and all the others out there like him. I love how humble he is.. his father says "He mentions every other soldier would have done the same thing. It kind of rocks his world that he's being awarded the Medal of Honor for something each and every one of them would have done. He's very aware of that."

Hugs everyone! news.yahoo.com/s/ap/us_obama_medal_o
