Want to meet a hero? Here

They should be naming elementary schools and highways for this man.  RIP, Bob Howard.

He passed away in 2009, but someone put this on Facebook today.  IMO, we can never be reminded too often of men like this.

    RE: Special Forces Medal of Honor Recipients

    I served with two Special Forces soldiers who were awarded the Medal of Honor for their heroism in Vietnam. One of them Colonel Howard. It was a true privilege. Colonel Howard ‘s character was such that I lack the words to describe it. He came from a poor, southern, rural family that had sent its sons in harms way for the USA for generations. Four members of his immediate family served as paratroopers in WWII. Of such men does the Republic entrust its survival.

    A tribute to Colonel Howard, composed by Special Forces veterans, can be found here:


    I especially recommend the video:


    May he rest in peace.

    God bless

    Not to steal any thunder, but I direct your attention to Fr. Capodanno; born into eternal life while shepherding his flock in a most conspicuous way.


    BTW Deacon, he is resting “around the corner” from you.



  3. Bob Torrey says:

    May his soul and the souls of all the faithful rest in peace.

  4. Deacon Greg -

    Thank you for this wonderful and moving post. God bless our men and women in uniform. I thank them for their love for me – my family – and my nation.

    “No one has greater love then this, than one who lays down his life for a friend.”
