That's it? Nothing about what he actually did to earn the medal? Think it might have been better to hold off on this article until you could add some details. He's not getting the award until July 12. Give us the story.

I know I posted a comment here earlier; yet, it isn't appearing at all. However, when I signed in to see if it registered, it shows #3. Oddly comment #2 isn't showing either.

Are we to assume that the comments criticizing LCSN for not running a decent article will be censored?

My earlier comment was just to give a link for those wanting the details that should have been included on the AP article that LCSN utilized.

My earlier comment read: Gosh darn LCSN, if you were going to run a story I would think that you'd use a bit more discernment as to whose to run. Just because it says AP on it doesn't mean it is worthy of print.

A little more meat to the story and the legacy of this young man being honored would have been nice.
