Pentagon recommends Medal of Honor for a living soldier - July 1, 2010, 06:05 PM

For the first time in a long time, the Medal of Honor is being considered for award to a soldier that is still living.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dy...063005346.html

Current and former military members know how huge an honor this is. I hope he gets it.

Pinoy, and proud of it!

I'll tell you who should've been awarded one and could've been awarded one while alive.

Maj Doug Zembiec USMC

He was killed during his fourth tour in Iraq.
