Vietnam War Heroes | Medal of Honor for a Vietnam hero?

This man risked his life to save those of his comrades, and Michael Sam is a 'hero' because he came out of the closet? Bullshit. Get your priorities straight.

This guy. This guy deserves all the medals…

Dunstable’s act of heroism is because he was injured during the Third Battle at Ypres. Ramsay becomes disoriented and his left leg is torn apart by shrapnel. He crawls through the mud and confusion into the remains of a building as a flare drops before him. Ramsay had been presumed dead as his tags were lost in the battle, and he is shocked to learn that he was posthumously awarded the Victoria Cross.

Worth the long pin. We need more men with hero's hearts, and less boys with "swag".  All Americans---look to this man. Never leave a man behind. What a hero and great soldier! Thank you sir for your duty!

Captain America may have jumped on a fake grenade to save his fellow soldiers in training, but in real life Lance Corporal William Kyle Kennedy actually did this… only the grenade was real.  On November 21, 2010 while in Afghanistan, a grenade was thrown into his sandbagged position.  Rather than run, Carpenter used his own body to shield the other soldier with him from the blast.  Miraculously, though severely injured, Kennedy lived and was awarded the Medal of Honor in June of 2014.
