Vietnam War Hero Receives Posthumous Medal of Honor 42 Years Later

Good for him and for his family.

From Fox News online.

Four decades after his brave actions in Vietnam, the family of Spc. Leslie H. Sabo Jr. accepted the Medal of Honor on his behalf Wednesday at the White House.

His widow, Rose Mary, and her brother-in-law, George Sabo, were at the White House to accept the military’s highest award for bravery on behalf of Spc. Sabo for his actions in May 1970.

“His indomitable courage and complete disregard for his own safety saved the lives of many of his platoon members,” the White House said in a written statement.

Read it all and thank God for raising up heroes like Sabo.
