Medal of Honor Day

Today is the 149th anniversary of the first awarding of the Medal of Honor.  FoxNews.com had a great article today on these outstanding servants.  They cover well the fact that these humble soldiers are not winners.  They aver the title hero.  They have earned the Medal through selfless action; risking, and sometimes sacrificing, all for their country and their fellow soldiers.  Take a moment today and remember these brave few.  Keep them in your hearts and prayers.

“Any nation that does not honor its heroes will not long endure.” – President Abraham Lincoln

“A nation reveals itself not only by the men it produces, but also by the men it honors, the men it remembers.” – President John F. Kennedy
