That ws simply awsome and well deserved. So many of us have forgotten what our veterans have fought and died for. The honor of the American service hero's is not what it needs to many of these individuals are suffering and struggling to make it in everyday lfe....and that hurts me! Fixed incomes that are so fixed, they can't live comfortably I would like to see any returning veteran to be able to recieve the upmost assistance man kind has to offer; the injured returning home should never have to worry about buying ahome, one should be rewarded to them. That would take the first burden away from them, 2nd is to never worry about health care for them or their immediate family. Lets really honor our veterans.

HATS OFF to these two gentleman and thank you for everything you did to allow me and my family to be free! I am a proud American from Ashland Ohio

great statement about humility. great heroes don't readily speak about their accomplishments and prefer to keep their feelings inside. the greatest american generation was called to do a duty and gave their all including many that never came home. if there was one thing that i have always wanted to see would be the many cemeteries in france and belgium honoring the men and women of the United
states armed forces.
