He was going to cruise to victory anyway. He did it because of his own personal demons and because he thought he could get aw...

re: How long do you wait to take dead people off your contacts? - Jim Rockford
Apparently it's a thing to leave someone's social media account up for friends/family to post on it on anniversaries, etc. Kind of weird, but whatever helps them cope. Worse is there's always somebody out of the loop who says "happy birthday, let's get together," or "looking good!" on a thread w...

Oral histories of MoH recipients - Jim Rockford
They're from 5-15 minutes long. About half are from Vietnam, the rest from Korea and WWII. Worth your time to watch a few. [link=(https://www.youtube.com/user/MedalOfHonorBook/videos?view=0&sort=dd&shelf_id=0)]LINK[/link]...
