Medal of Honor Recipients Give Inspiration

Inspiration from Congressional Medal winners ...

"Just go straight in shooting..."
"And so you pray..."
"You gotta fight your way out. You're on your own."
"We don't wear it for ourselves, we wear it for all those who can't..."
"The real honor is that a handful of young men who were with you at the time thought you was worthy of it..."
