    Probably one of the most heroic MOH awardees' in our history.

    I had the extreme honor of having lunch with him with I was assigned to Aberdeen Proving Ground, MD in 1986. Phenomenal gentleman with a bigger-than-life sense of humor.
    Later I read his book. It too should be required reading in schools.
    I cherish that I broke bread with him that day.

    He came to my high school in the early 1980s. He was one of the reasons why I joined up. The other reason was hoping to kill commies though that part didn't quite pan out.

    Then he came again to University of New Mexico's ROTC meet & greet back in the early 1990s. I wasn't in ROTC but I stopped by to say hello to the guy and told him that I served because of his visit to my high school a decade ago. He thought that it was a cool story.
