Amen! RIP Soldier. You are a man I admire greatly. The thing I love about men of "The Greatest Generation" like my dad who was a Marine in the South Pacific in WWII,  is that they are humble and say, "I was just doing my duty to my country." God that we had more men like that today!

Maybe we do, and women too. Our country is on the rise.

You don't know history when you are making it.

Me personally, no. But those around me, for sure.

 Modeling is an excuse to buy books.

RIP, Master Sergeant.

George Sakota is now the oldest living MoH recipient, followed by Walter Ehlers and Robert Maxwell - all age 92.  The youngest is Dakota Meyer, age 25.

The numbers remaining of great men like that are fading fast. I expose my 9 year old son to as much of the greatness of heroes like this man who you speak of. I always have my son go and shake the hand of any war veteran and have him thank them for their service. Lil Joseph knows a few things about history just through being around me but I try to teach him the value of what it takes to achieve the freedoms that we have here in this country and to be thankful for folks like Master Sgt. Oresko here.He's met and shaken hands with a member of the Tuskagee airmen at the U.S.S. Lexington museum, an SBD Dauntless mechanic aboard the U.S.S. Yorktown at the local food market,and a foot soldier in the Battle of the Bulge at the Pacific War Museum in Fredricksburg, Tx. just to list a few.  It's important for all of us to remember people like this and to pass this all down to the youth. May we never forget!! Thanks for bringing this all to light Stikpusher, Joe
