    Afghan vet who fought wounded gets Medal of Honor

  • Janet Montelongo

    Medal of Honor Former Army Staff Sergeant Ryan Pitts. July 2014

  • Valerie Gale

    Bleeding from both legs and his arm, Ryan Pitts kept firing at about 200 Taliban fighters, even holding onto his grenades an extra moment to ensure the enemy couldn't heave them back. On Monday, President Barack Obama draped the Medal of Honor around his neck, in a somber White House ceremony that also paid tribute to his nine platoon comrades who died that summer day in Afghanistan.

It's hard to believe that not too long ago, women weren't allowed to vote in the US. Things have changed in the US and people belonging to minority groups worked hard to fight for the rights that I have today. I think it is important to exercise your right to vote and I believe it is my duty as a citizen to stay informed with what is going on in the government.

Susan B Anthony pummeled in the street and arrested for attempting to vote in 1872. She was fined 100 dollars for registering to vote.

THANKFUL. saddened that any of them had to die, and experience any of the things they had to experience that is going to haunt them forever, and for that "thank you" just isn't enough to tell our service men and women we owe them a lot more than that!

LOVE this. Thanks to all who serve.
