WOW! Talk about being your brothers' keeper. SPC4 Hector Santiago-Colon wanted to be a policeman, but NYPD required military veterans. He enlisted in the Army & went to Vietnam with B Co, 7th Cav, 1st Cav Div. On 28 June 1968, his unit engaged the Vietcong & an enemy soldier lobbed a hand grenade into their foxhole. Santiago tucked it into his stomach away from his comrades to absorb the blast. Santiago, survived by a fiance & 11 siblings, was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor in 1970.

This is what a HERO looks like! Navy SEAL Jon Tumilson, and his dog Hawkeye. He died in August 2011, when his helicopter was brought down by a Taliban RPG. Thirty eight Special Operations men and one Military Working Dog were on board.  All were killed. 1,500 people attended the funeral. Hawkeye was there and spent the entire service lying under his coffin. Never forget.  http://loveahero.com #LoveAHero #heroeshonor #RIP #marines #military #supportourtroops #airforce #neverforget #navy…
