Worthy of the Medal of Honor

As Far as I am concerned this is worthy of the Medal of Honor and I am sure those platoons in the 2-7 Battalion of the 24th Infantry Division would agree. 2 days prior to the offical start of the war or not. They were all under orders.

  • THere has been two MOH recipients so far in Iraq. Cpl Dunham, Marines, awarded MOH for sacrificing himself by jumping on a grenade.
    SFC Smith, Army, awarded MOH for killing an estimated 50 insurgents with the .50 Cal before being overrun and shot to death.

  • Nerves of steel, good piloting skillz, and an overwhelming desire to provide protection for the soldiers pinned down on the ground. He deserves a standing 'O' from the entire nation. Consideration for a medal will come along down the road.

  • Is the Bronze Star medal with the Valor insignia awarded to pilots? This sounds a lot more like what happened. The most recent MOH was awarded to Maj. Bruce Crandall who servered back in the Vietnam war. I don't think anyone has been even considered for this citation in Iraq.

    Michael Monsoor, A US Navy SEAL who dove onto a grenade that was thrown onto the rooftop his team occupied, is being considered for the medal.

  • Medal of Honor
    From Wikipedia

    The Medal of Honor has been awarded only four times, all of them posthumously, for actions occurring since the withdrawal of US forces from Vietnam in 1973.[3][18][49] The first two were earned by Sergeant First Class Randy Shughart and Master Sergeant Gary Gordon, who were defending downed Black Hawk helicopter pilot Chief Warrant Officer Michael Durant and his crew during the Battle of Mogadishu in 1993. The others were awarded during the Iraq Campaign. In 2005, More..

    the music is from Black Hawk Down.

    This definitely deserves the DFC but not a Medal of Honor.

  • HeadShotVictim: "let's see. What is the price of A-10 with American pilot?(sometimes money-wise pilots r more expensive than planes). And compare it with a price of 3 Iraqi tanks-T-72 (in the best case for US).
    Now that was stupid bravery, cause he could call for F-15 ground strike and go back home intact."
    Time is money or in this case time is the live of your buddies on the ground.

  • Okay, for all you religious freaks out there who support war, yes war, something that involves the murder of people. What does it say in those books of yours?

    Only one just war that I can think of was over 60 years ago,fighting the very people that we in the west are now supporting through our taxes, and half of us through the ballot box!

    Fuck wars and anyone who starts them. Where has the compassion and peace gone?

    Bush should be removed NOW!
