    Day is done,

    .......gone the sun
    From the hill, from the lake, from the sky,
    Rest in peace, soldier brave,
    God is nigh.

    Most medal winners, not just the CMH, are just guys who were in the right place at the wrong time, and then they let their training and motivation take over. That can be sorta hard to do at times...

    Rest in peace brave warrior.

    I saw in yesterday's Albuquerque paper that he was a longtime Albuquerque resident, and that there is a move to name the Albuquerque VA hospital after him due to his long-time advocacy for wounded vets.
