Paul Smith: Father, Husband, Patriot, MOH Awardee
Earlier, I discussed Sergeant First Class Paul Smith in this post. Today, the St. Petersburg Times reports that he will posthumously be awarded the Medal of Honor for his actions outside Baghdad on April 4, 2003. Read this story for a fuller appreciation of what made this man the hero that he is. "Greater love hath no man than this..."
Snapshot 1420 02 Feb: Normally, I'm entertained and bemused by the antics of the hate-filled left over at Democratic Underground. Today, though, I because of their reactions to the MOH story in this thread, I have only one thing to say to the DUers who slander Smith's memory and his family: F*ck you. None of you is fit to even question the emotions being felt by the Smith family. Legally, you have that right. Morally, not even close. F*ck the lot of you. (Edited 1428 to replace the letter "u" with asterisks in the update.)
Update 1526 02 Feb: Blackfive honors Sergeant First Class Smith.
