Reading the story of how Army Staff Sgt. Clinton Romesha became the fourth living Medal of Honor recipient from the War on Terror is a bracing reminder that the spirit of valor which won our independence, and threw down the Axis, is still alive and well. Romesha on the injuries he suffered that terrible day: “I’ve had buddies that have lost eyesight and lost limbs. I would rather give them all the credit they deserve for sacrificing so much. For me it was nothing, really. I got a little peppered, that was it.”
Politicians are talking about downsizing the military, but the military remains great. It’s the politicians who got small.
