Mike Thornton...Medal of Honor SEAL. Michael Thornton was one of only 15 U.S. Navy personnel, (three of them SEALs), who received the Medal of Honor for their heroic actions during the Vietnam War. He is also the only recipient in over a century to save the life of another Medal of Honor recipient – SEAL Lieutenant Thomas Norris – who had performed heroic, lifesaving actions of his own just months earlier. Both men are still alive and well today.

J. Robert Oppenheimer, born on April 22, 1904, was the scientific director of the Manhattan Project, the World War II project that developed the first nuclear weapons. He strongly opposed the development of the hydrogen bomb, however, and in 1953 was suspended from secret nuclear research as an alleged communist sympathizer, a case backed by Edward Teller. In 1963 he was reinstated and awarded the Enrico Fermi Award.
