John Chapman's actions speak for themselves, and echo through Valhalla as they are. A Medal of Honor changes nothing. A Medal of Honor does not make his actions any more honorable, heroic, or extraordinary. Not giving him a Medal of Honor does not lessen his actions in any way. A Medal of Honor is some cheap alloy and a blue ribbon. That is all. Some of you need to either remember that, or figure it out for the first time.
Life’s barely long enough to get good at one thing. So be careful what you get good at.

This stud fought to the end with everything he had. I was always impressed with the CCT folks. Highly trained and professionals.

I won't be wronged. I won't be insulted. I won't be laid a hand on. I don't do these things to other people and I require the same from them.
