Honor, Duty, Sacrifice

Today I was watching Blackhawk Down, and thought it would be a good time to explain a little bit about Honor, and Team to my son. As I began to explain the actions of Randy Shughart & Gary Gordon, I found myself choked up to the point of being rendered "speechless."
From time to time if I need a reminder of true sacrifice, or a model of honor I review the stories of the 3,467 recipients. I encourage you to read some of them here. We all need heroes, and inspiration, these are some of mine.
