He walked over. Its pretty impossible to knock me down, slash.
Has anyone realized that men who have RECIEVED the Medal of Honor aren't heroes and don't want to be called heroes. Did they do anything different than the men to their left and right. No matter what though, I respect all the men and women who have served our country valiantly and with bravery.
