The Most Heavily Decorated Veteran of the Modern Era
This is an archived news report, but it's worth showing even now. Robert Lewis Howard (July 11, 1939 – December 23, 2009) was a highly decorated United States Army soldier and Medal of Honor recipient of the Vietnam War. He was wounded 14 times over 54 months of combat, was awarded 8 Purple Hearts, 4 Bronze Stars, and was nominated for the Medal of Honor three separate times. He was laid to rest at Arlington National Cemetery.
Wild Thing's comment........
I am so glad they have done this video of US Army Veteran Robert Lew Howard.
Last December I did a post about Robert Lewis Howard that Tom had sent me information about. It has added information and photos you also might be interested in reading and seeing.
Col. Howard was wounded 14 times in 54 months of combat duty in Vietnam and was awarded 8 Purple Hearts.
He also went to visit our troops serving in todays war. That had to be so awesome for our troops to meet this Hero and for him to meet them too and share with them.
....Thank you Mark for sending this to me.
