Bob Howard 1939-2009

Nice tribute to Bob Howard tonight on the evening news. Five tours in Vietnam...three Medal of Honor nominations for three separate acts of heroism...eight Purple Hearts. 50 years in the service. Wiki link

His site is down at the moment, probably being updated. Edit: It's back up.

Re: Bob Howard 1939-2009

We've lost a true warrior and a good man.
He's been a good mentor and friend to so many of us in Special Forces.
We've been prepared for this and have put things in motion to properly honor Bob.
Cancer did what the enemy couldn't.
May he rest in peace.

I'm not even worthy of looking at his shadow on the ground!

Re: Bob Howard 1939-2009

I saw a lengthy report on this fine man. It was a sobering reminder to me of the extreme good fortune of a high percentage (me included) of the American people to have true heros such as Mr. Howard watching out for them.
