Medal of Honor

If you didn't get to see or hear of the young man from Iowa, staff sergeant Salvator Glunta who received the highest military award, let me tell you, it was very moving.

The now 25 year old veteran is the only living recipient from the Iraq and Afghanistan war and when you see this humble guy, know his commitment to his fellow soldiers when he was 22, my eyes watered. His acts of bravery could have turned out much worse for him as it has for the 7 other Medal of Honor recipients from the Iraq/Afghanistan war.

Whether we agree on the war or not, staff sergeant Glunta is a man we can all look up to and should consider ourselves lucky to have such a man in our military.
