And then there were 84

Charles Murray died today. You probably don't know who he is but we all should. He was awarded the Medal of Honor back in 1944. On Omaha Beach he single handedly launched an attack on an enemy position. He would go on to serve in Korea and Vietnam. His death leaves us with 84 remaining living recepients of the Medal of Honor.

A Marine- Corporal Dakota Meyers will be awarded next month for his actions in Afghanistan.
