Lest We Forget...

Sunday up date---one of my favorite sites posted this and gave me a h/t ---plus --a commenter stated what I had been thinking-why was Col. Howard not given an higher rank?....
My reaction when I first saw this was---"Why wasn't he a General!?"
Any ideas from you all....?
Mine:He was a truth teller..and was strong in his beliefs and stuck to his beliefs...

Just showed it to my dad, a veteran of the US intelligence services during the Cold War.

Col Bob Howard is an American Patriot and War Hero of the highest order!!!

Frankly, this video has brought to my dears to know our glorious Republic has produced men of this calibre.

God Bless America
God Bless Col Howard
