Salvatore Giunta - A name you should know

Sal will be the first living soldier since Vietnam to recieve the medal of honor. He's an Iowa boy too. I'm proud of him. Hope you are too. The story doesn't tell it all. According to what I heard on NPR today, his Sgt. said there were as many bullets flying around as "stars in the sky." Though Giunta didn't save the man he retrieved, as the Sgt. put it, "His body was able to be bried on American Soil and his parents got to see him one more time."

He's an American soldier. The best of the best. The kind of guy who has liberated millions world wide and have never ask for anything in return but a place to bury our dead. May God bless him the rest of his days and one day welcome him into the Perpetual light. Not much to add, the story said it all.
