Congratulations Colonel Crandall

A bit late in the day now Mr Bush ______________________________ This award was awarded to Lieutenant Colonel Bruce P.Crandall retired U.S. Army, a bit late in my opinion almost 42 years ago. Is somebody trying to make their selves look good here and I don’t mean Colonel Crandall either. George and his administration again I shouldn’t wonder he awards him the highest Honor (I shall spell it the American way for this) the country can award; the Colonel obviously earned this award so come clean George why has his bravery gone unnoticed all these years. I have a theory as to why but I’m afraid you and your henchmen have left the Republican run for your position rather late now. The Medal of Honor is the U.S Military’s highest decoration for the benefit of non Americans who may read this. It was first awarded in the American civil war the citation reads as follows. "For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of life, above and beyond the call of duty, in actual combat against an armed enemy force" It has now been awarded 3,461 times since then, prior to this it was last awarded to a USMC Corporal Jason L.Dunham sadly posthumously. A little history of the award (1) The Medal of Honor was designed in the early days of the Civil War to represent the valiant efforts of the Union Army, Navy and Marines, and (2) Over the years as the Medal has become a historic symbol of the bravest of the brave, in respect to all who have earned it, little has been done to change its design. Pictured below are the three types also called the Congressional Medal of Honor Akin I guess to the Victoria Cross awarded for Valour in the old British Commonwealth countries now just the Commonwealth of nations; Ah who cares what they are called now the thing is this brave man had to wait far too long to be recognised by his Government FAR TOO LONG `````````````````````````````````````````
