Yes you are absolutely right. This man is the ultimate hero. His picture should be in the dictionary to define the word hero. He was taken prisoner ,held captive and starved to death by Americas enemys. I cant help but think what kind of person he was and would have been in the community if he hadnt given his life for this nation. He gave all. I wish I could have met and knew him. MAY GOD BLESS HIM AND HIS FAIMLY!!!
