Jackasses? You let a whole column get stalled and strafed on account of a couple of jackasses? What the hell's the matter with you?

The President of the United States awarded the Medal of Honor yesterday to Captain (Chaplain) Emil Kapaun for his heroism during the Korean War. It's a must-read story.

They have a high school here in Wichita (Kapaun-Mt. Carmel) named after him. He was from this area.

Nice to see him get his deserved recognition.

No Medals of Honor, but this was a great book-
"No Greater Glory: The Four Immortal Chaplains and the Sinking of the Dorchester in World War II"

This Memorial Day weekend, do not thank a veteran. Say a prayer of thanks for those in our military who gave their last full measure of devotion, and all their tomorrows, so that we could enjoy today and all OUR tomorrows.

What a great story. This man was more than deserving of this honor. **SALUTE**
