    Throwing oneself on a grenade...

    I don't like to picture that.

    I read an article a while back (maybe a year or two ago) about the three oldest living Medal of Honor recipients. I don't recall if Bob Maxwell was one of them or not, at that time. What I do remember is that all three of them had received the Medal of Honor for throwing themselves on grenades to save their comrades! They all survived.

    Just tells me that the same kinda guys who have the grit, loyalty, & selfless mindset to do that are also some really tough sonsaguns!!! God bless them!!!
