Congratulations… a true American hero. It will be such a great honor for him to receive it from the first African American President.

Woof, Mr. Clark refers in the article to why he was not given the medal at the time of his heroic actions, as because of "bigotry". "It wouldn't look good to say one black man saved the ship," he said. It is indeed unfortunate that such a segregationist Political system and presidential administration was in power throughout WWII. Roosevelt was not against the KKK having appointed a member to the Supreme court, and in 1945, when this medal should have been awarded, Truman was in office. Truman at one time joined the KKK. Democrats will be Democrats. I guess it is fitting that now under the Obama administration this Democrat wrong is being corrected by a Democrat.

Yes, he is a great hero, but I would not let obimbo give him a medal or flag pin????

Maybe a copy of Karl Marx's Das Capital would be an apt present from Obimbo, hopefully the veteran would throw it at him!!!

Even if he said that the captain said he singularly save the ship, I dout this. With a broken collar bone? I'm sure there were others there to help put out the fire and that the captain had visited the other crew members when possible. He got what he deserved and that was his Navy , Marine Combat Action Medal, which has a 'V' device for valor if the individual seen actual combat as this gentalman has. His injuries could of kept him from sea duty and the paper work like with so many other deserving soldiers and sailors were lost in the shuffle. I myself, have put in for several peoples Bronze Stars that were given to soldiers in the WWII's ETO who had left the service before they could be issued to them. These individuals did not even know that they had earned them! I know that there was bigotry at that time in the Armed Forces as do a lot of people now a days, but I also think that this was also used as a political stunt at the same time. I'm sure that there are plenty of other races that did not get their fair share either, and they can care less because they don't want to be reminded of an ugly war.

What's really disgusting is the way Rightie pigs like you play politics with this well-deserved honor. You, like so many of your kind these days, would rather divide the country than take pride in it and its defenders; had you been running things at the time, we'd have fallen apart and LOST WWII.

Incidentally, douchebag, Truman INTEGRATED the military against the wishes and the opposition of a lot of people, both (Southern) Dem AND ReTHUGlican. Sit and spin.

You would let the country have been destroyed by Nazis and Japanese, too. In fact you'd likely have served as a fifth columnist for one or both sides.

You should be beaten to death with a copy of 'Kapital.' A fitting end.

A typical ChiCom troll and asshat wants more attention and division. You have that much in common with the American Right, at least.

Throw yourself under a bullet train, troll.

That idiot has been stalking me for years desperate for a response; but I always ignore him because all he wants is attention.

But just like the rest of these unpatriotic right-wingers that hate this President because he’s Black, they will continue to suffer over the next 5 years of his historic Presidency… and that is a good thing.

Funny, you calling someone else an idiot when it's you who uses more names than Obama. Who would stalk a POS such as you? Everyone knows you are a paid 'shill' by the communist left who are controlled by Satan himself. GFY idiot.
