“We got the 44 out. None of those names appear on the wall in Washington. There's nothing more important than that.”
-Retired Lt. Col. Charles Kettles
President Obama awarded Lt. Col. Charles Kettles the Medal of Honor the other day. I won't go into details here, (read his story here), but it is nice to finally hear about a real hero on the news once in awhile, even if it did take almost 50 years. The original battle happened on May 15, 1967.
