    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    If you look at the pictures at the bottom of the article, you might think that he has his arm around himself in the first two photos.

    since my last MoH report, there are now 81 surviving living recipients.

    Mike
    Going over things to keep the list up to date, I could find no record of the individual highlighted.

    (a *POX* on whoever placed this name in the annals earlier this year! )

    OTOH, and so far unreported in here, genuine Medal of Honor recipient John F. Baker, Jr. did pass away on 2012-01-20.

    R.I.P.



    Thus, as of this report, the are still 81 surviving living recipients.
