Thank you Army Cpt Rose..

He was a awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor. He is a hero in many ways.

Sadly the wimpy bone spur candy ass war dodger was the one to award Cpt Rose his medal.

1. His actions read like an over thetop Clancy novel

“Sgt. Rose, bravely and courageously, with no regard for his own safety, moved through the enemy fire to render lifesaving medical treatment to the mounting wounded, personally engaging the enemy to get the wounded men,” the Army said in its account.

On the second day, Rose himself was wounded as he dragged an injured soldier to safety. A rocket-propelled grenade hit nearby, exploding shrapnel into his back, leg and foot.

Later, Rose would take his boot off and slip his entire index finger through the wound in his foot. "I remember putting my sock back on. I remember thinking, I’ll worry about that later," he told USA TODAY.

“It was like, 'Here’s a Band Aid, take two aspirin and see me in the morning' moment," he said.

Rose continued to tend to the wounded soldiers with whatever dwindling supplies he had, doling out just enough morphine to blunt their pain and keep them moving.

On the fourth day, helicopters arrived under heavy fire to evacuate the company. Rose got on the last helicopter, which took on heavy fire and crashed miles away. He pulled the men from the burning wreckage and tended to their wounds until another helicopter arrived.

Back at base, Rose refused treatment until the other men were attended to, the Army said.

Despite the constant heavy firepower, only three men died over the four days.

thank you Captain Rose. I am very sorry that the Congressional approval didn't happen until after the Tangerine shitwad was in office...
