Yesterday in the San Jose Mercury News it was reported that a soldiers family was awarded the Medal of Honor. In Iraq, he jumped on a grenade, to save the lives of his fellow soldiers. What an amazing sacrifice!! What a selfless act!! I bet he did not even think twice. Although I have real issues with war, in general, in this age of intelligence, I think the President is right to highlight this brave man's sacrifice. I would count myself lucky to have friends like that. What do you think? Can you imagine making such a choice? By the way....he was 25 years old.
