A genuine American Hero

From: "George Schwend" <george_schwend@verizon.net>
Date: June 14, 2011 10:32:20 AM EDT
To: "George Schwend" <george_schwend@verizon.net>
Subject: A genuine American Hero

This video is about a medal of honor recipient who tells his story with input from his superior.  The story is valid and covers the emotions felt by those in combat and how they feel about medals they have received. 
 
Watch this video.  This is an articulate volunteer who exemplifies the finest qualities of the American combat soldier.http://devour.com/video/medal-of-honor
 
Thank God we have young men like this.  A true American Hero...humbling.
 
Warning:  There is rough GI language used
