I’m sure you’re going to get a LOT of mail on this powerful story. I won’t belabor the point that many writers better than me will make. I will simply quote a verse from a Coldplay song:p> em>Tears stream br> Down your face br> When you loose something br> You cannot replace. /em> /p> p>These irreplaceable men and women serving the country in Iraq and Afghanistan are incredible.

I would like to thank Jeff Emanuel for doing the job the American Mainstream Media won’t do. Early on in this war I dedicated some of my decreasing memory cells to always remember the names of the men awarded the Medal of Honor in this conflict. Why? I knew the MSM media would almost ignore the actions of these brave men. I would like to add two names to Mr. Emanuel’s list that I’m sure he only left off due to space constraints: Sgt 1st Class Paul Smith, USA, awarded the Medal of Honor for actions very similar to those of Lt. Audie Murphy in the ETO. And Sgt Raphael Peralta, USMC, under consideration for the Medal of Honor for smothering a grenade with his body. The MSM should be profiling the courage of men like these this Memorial Day, but they won’t. I’ll raise a glass to these men this weekend, and also to Jeff Emanuel for profiling some of them.
