Re: Hero': Who were your's as a child?
Another cousin, Joe Hooper, was another Vietnam vet and was probably the most decorated soldier of the war, being awarded the MOH, two Silver Stars, six Bronze Stars, and eight Purple Hearts. Joe Ronnie was a troubled soul and we lost him in 1979. He was only 40 years old. Joe is buried in Arlington National.
Clint, I read Mr. Hoopers MOH citation, nothing short of amazing! I've read a lot of these over the years, and hands down the most unbelievable one I ever read was for Roy Benavidez.
CMOHS.org - Master Sergeant BENAVIDEZ, ROY P., U.S. Army
When he was medevac'ed out, they thought he was dead until he spit in the medics face as he was zipping up the body bag! Of course he was a Texan
It is a rare man who can count his own blessings and not mistake them for personal achievements.
