Hey, if they guy EARNED it, GIVE IT TO HIM!
Of the 851 Medals of Honor awarded since December 7, 1941 there are 90 living recipients. Their average age is 75. There have been many discussions and questions about the current award procedure.
I'm glad to see that they are apparently recognizing this soldier. The MoH stands pretty much outside my comprehension- I have a hard reading the citations of previous winners without being in awe and disbelief at every one of them. They are unbelievable acts of bravery and sacrifice fom amazing men- I salute them all .
It would be nice to read the story of an MOH without the words POSTHUMOUSLY printed in the context of the article.
If I am correct I think the youngest living MOH is in his 50's now.
That would be Colonel Gordon Roberts, USA, and he's still in uniform.
The Army times has identified the soldier nominated as SSG Sal Giunta of B/2-503 Abn Inf - 173d Abn Bde.
Much better that the "Restraint" medal they're talking about....
It is about Time!
I would also like to see Marcus Luttrell considered for the MOH as well. Hell of a Seal and a great role model.
