Roy Benavidez was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor for his actions West of Loc Ninh, South Vietnam in May of 1968. When word that a squad was pinned down by enemy fire Roy Benavidez immediately volunteered to exact their rescue. During the course of the effort he subjected himself to constant enemy fire and suffered numerous injuries, but still led the remaining soldiers to protect and defend their position even after their first rescue helicopter was shot down.

What a man! Every politician should be forced to watch this video everyday. I am sick of the disrespect and disdain these politicians have for the military now. It is an absolute shame that our men and women are regarded as pieces of meat rather than the potential Benevidez's of the future.
