Soldier receives Medal of Honor


That makes Two soldiers, Two sailors, one Marine, and zero airmen.... Interesting mix!

I hope this inspires more of our brave heroes to extra brave acts that save lives and, hopefully, get the war over sooner.

Soldier receives Medal of Honor - Marine Corps News, news from Iraq - Marine Corps Times: "A 19-year-old soldier with an infectious grin and a deep love for his fellow soldiers was honored Monday with the nation’s highest award for valor.

Spc. Ross McGinnis’ parents, Tom and Romayne, were presented with the Medal of Honor by President George W. Bush during an emotional ceremony at the White House.

“Ross did what he did for his buddies,” Romayne said. “He did that all his life.”

Tom McGinnis said he “was trying to make it through the ceremony. We’ve been through this a lot.”"
