A real hero: Ross McGinnis


In June 2008, Pres. Bush awarded the Medal of Honor to the parents of Ross McGinnis.

This is the nation's highest award for courage in combat.

It was the fourth time the Medal has been awarded for those who have served in Iraq.

"In the gunner's hatch of a Humvee driving through Baghdad on December 4, 2006, Private McGinnis saw a grenade fly through the hatch, rolling to where it could have injured the four other soldiers inside.

In easy position to leap and save himself, McGinnis instead jumped to cover the grenade with his body to shield his comrades.
The four men he saved were all at the White House yesterday to pay their respects."
Every young man and woman in the armed forces is a volunteer. They choose to serve their country.   They deserve our support and respect.


They are also heroes, first class heroes!
