Interview w/ Medal of Honor Recipient -Marine-A Humble Young Man-

pre- posted this last night-hoping to get certain permission-haven't been able to reach Bronze Star recipient - had to get this out -

His answer reminds me of the answer given by a family member when he recieved the Bronze Star -recently-" I really don't deserve it- I was just watching out for my guys.."

this h/t -Threedonia
_Looks Like the ARMY Capt. Will Swenson-may be getting the MoH too-seems he criticized the brass for not acting quickly enough - so was passed over_--NOW- the brass are - re-THINKING -GOOD!

The great ones always say "I was just doing my job, and protecting my fellow soldiers/my men".

All of them, all through time.

J Fing Kerry? Got 3 band-aid purple hearts and went home. One of them didn't even need a band-aid

This how it is for most soldiers, they become family, brothers in arms, and they will die to protect each other.

In my opinion, they are all heroes.

Exactly what Kid said, the real heroes are the ones who don't look for trouble.
