On another note related note, I met another Congressional Medal of Honor awardee yesterday - Al Lynch. Al Lynch was a Cavalry soldier. On one day in 1967, he took care of three wounded comrades during a battle in Viet Nam, and, then, when his company pulled back, stayed with the wounded and fought off the Viet Cong, alone, for hours until they could be rescued.
I have met about 20 of these guys over the last few years. To a man, they are the most humble, nicest human beings you would ever have met.
