    I have known a few bad *** soldiers in my time- and even met 11 gents from WWII on their way to the White House to be awarded THE medal-and I knew of one Special Forces Sgt that had a VC that threw a grenade at a patrol, who grabbed the VC and threw HIM onto the grenade- but this gent......

    When I went into the service in 1967, one of our infantry platoon sgt's was a guy whose name was Sgt. Brown. Of coarse,we called him 'bugger' but not to his face.

    His decorations put generals to shame.(airborne w/3 stars) He had been to VN on 2 tours when I met him.

    He was 5'6" and the toughest man I ever saw.He lived to fight the enemy.

    I also want to mention my dad and dad in law.My wife is a genealogist and we found out both were at the invasion of Okinawa.

    Both in the navy,fil was radar man on ship, and dad was a navy 'medic' He hauled ammo,food,water to the line and brought back the dead and wounded.

    They are both almost gone.

    They probably didn't want to embarass the other chaps on the list. :D

    Holy f**ck!! I'd never heard about this man before. It takes balls the size of a small planet to do that, and stop and apologize to your superior officer for the inconvenience while going up in flames. And I thought I was having a bad day because my neck hurts a bit and I got into an argument with my girlfriend.

    General of the Armies, (only living American promoted to 6 stars, George Washington was promoted to 6 stars in 1976) General John J Pershing. I remember being told this story in Marine Corps bootcamp. Needless to say that pumped us up post 9/11.

    They are all awesome, but fighting while holding you head on is amazing.
