Surrounded By Greatness

I am surrounded by greatness. These two gentlemen were visiting FOBs (Forward Operating Bases) in Iraq because they support us and believe in fighting to protect freedom. These two heroes received the Medal of Honor for their heroic actions during the war in Vietnam. The Medal of Honor is the highest honor given to men and women of the US Armed Forces. After his plane was shot down the North Vietnamese held the gentleman on the right as a POW for six years. His story of survival during those torturous six years is heart wrenching and inspiring.
