    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    He's one tough old solider...... He reminds me of 1st Sgt Virgin whom I had the privilege of serving under. He was a tough butt glider trooper in WW2......

    Thanks for taking the time to share this link. I have read about the incident for which he received the Medal and stared into his eyes in still photographs but had never heard him speak. I was totally unaware he had been captured and preserved on video. I can't help but feel a little guilty that I didn't care enough to look.

    Thank you for posting. I hope to reference this video periodically to remind me of the privilege of being served by gentlemen such as this.
