March 25th was Medal of Honor Day. I didn't know it until I saw Blackfive's post earlier tonight.
Greyhawk has an amazing round up of write-ups on many of those awarded the Medal of Honor, the "the highest award for valor in action against an enemy force" that can be bestowed on members of our military.
I liked MaryAnn in Germany's post too.
Take some time - whatever the date - to read up on these amazing stories.
