    Col. Bernard F. Fisher, who received the first Medal of Honor awarded to an aviator during the Vietnam War for a daring rescue of another pilot in the face of enemy fire on an airstrip, died on Aug. 16 in Boise, Idaho. He was 87. His son Bradford confirmed the death. Colonel Fisher held the rank of major on March 10, 1966, when, despite the warnings of fellow pilots and radio controllers, he landed on an embattled airstrip where another flier had crashed, taxied under heavy fire to find him, and got his comrade and himself out alive.

    Bleeding from both legs and his arm, Ryan Pitts kept firing at about 200 Taliban fighters, even holding onto his grenades an extra moment to ensure the enemy couldn't heave them back. On Monday, President Barack Obama draped the Medal of Honor around his neck, in a White House ceremony that also paid tribute to his nine platoon comrades who died that summer day in Afghanistan. Pitts, a 28-year-old former Army staff sergeant from Nashua, New Hampshire, is the ninth living veteran of America's wars in Afghanistan and Iraq to receive the nation's highest decoration for battlefield valor.

    Walking through Target and picked up the movie "Lone Survivor". Saw this twice at the theater and both times cried, right along with every other man. A moving story about true brothers, who would not leave each other's side, rallied their collective strength and held each other as men, doing their level best to help the guy on the right and the guy on the left. Sadly, only one man made it out, through shear determination and an indomitable spirit. But, not before more good men went to rescue them, knowing they were not fully armed, not fully covered in...

    In four days of desperate fighting, from 29 February to 3 March 2000, a large force of Chechen fighters wiped out a Russian paratroop company in the harsh defiles and ridges of the Argun Gorge in the mountains of southern Chechnya. Although the battle was a catastrophic tactical defeat for the Russian airborne force, the company's stubborn defense to the last man and the concentration of Russian relief forces inflicted a strategic setback on the Chechens. The Russians stumbled into this catastrophe through poor unit leadership, but Russian blood and valor transformed it into victory. Hatred to the Bone In...
