There are still men of honor in this country. Seems most will be dead in the next 20 years though.

I agree. What a way to pay honor to a war hero. He started out wanting a piece of history, then he made his own history.

He also received quite a piece of history as a reward.. for me just having something like that in my hands for a short time would have been reward enough.. It is refreshing to read stories like this, it is nice to know that duty and honor still exist.. I would love to meet Mr. Berry.

Men of Honor still reside in and defend this country. This is the story of two that prove unselfish acts reap their own rewards.
