Medal of Honor Candidate


The Los Angeles Times (*gasp*shock*) has a Column One article about Chris Adlesperger, a Marine who has been recommended for the Medal of Honor for his actions one day in November 2004 in Fallujah. He died a month later in combat.

It's hard to read the article and not get a lump in your throat...I actually had to wipe away a tear. It's a great piece, and I commend the Los Angeles Times for making it their spotlight front page story.

That was truly one of the most moving pieces I have ever read about Iraq. November is such a terrible month, five people my husband knew in Iraq died in that month. It's also when we celebrate Veteran's Day. Ironic.

Pardon my asking, but which in the photo is Adlesperger. Whoever he was he was a brave soul.

November is certainly a terrible month. The events of November 2004 will forever be in my mind and on my heart. When I think about all that happened that month and everything that changed so fast, it makes me so sad...of course, all of the losses in Iraq and Afghanistan are always on my mind.

That was a hard piece to read... but we need to hear more stories like these... more stories of our men and women who give all...
