An injustice is corrected at last. I applaud the efforts to set things right, and even though it did not start with Obama, it is wonderful that the first African-American President will be giving these medals to these hero's, It is sad to me that so many have passed on.
Thanks Carrie.

Thanks Carrie for the link to the great article by Mr. Wilson. Kuods to all these brave service members for their outstanding bravery and to the 107th congress for ordering the review. Read and noted.
