He got the MOH for running over motherfuckers in a boat. Fuckin' A Boats. What a legacy for Boatswain's Mates and Boat Guys. I stand on the shoulders of giants.

I remember reading his citation when I was reading Brown Water, Black Berets by Tom Cutler before I went to SWCC. I remember reading that when LBJ gave him his MOH he had to struggle to put it on him "Damn, Boats you got a big neck."

Then I went to 20 and got to meet him several times.
