    "I would rather have this medal than be President." President Harry S. Truman, former artillery battery commander in WWI.

    And, yes, it is traditional to render the hand salute to those who have earned the Medal of Honor.

    This young man can forever more hold his head high whatever company he is in.

    In response to the age old question, "Where do we find such men?"

    Answer: From all walks of life in America, home of the brave and freedom loving countrymen.

    This is a TRUE hero!! ""People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf." I am thankful every day for men like this and all those who are willing to pay the ultimate price to secure our freedom.
