Rumsfeld blasts press for ignoring hero

It's a strange time when a database search of America's leading newspapers turns up literally 10 times as many mentions of one of the soldiers who has been punished for misconduct -- 10 times more -- than the mentions of Sergeant First Class Paul Ray Smith, the first recipient of the Medal of Honor in the Global War on Terror.

— U.S. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, Address at the 88th Annual American Legion National Convention, Tuesday, August 29, 2006

For a refresher on Sgt. Smith, consult this blog's archive.

Get to know this extraordinary hero, father, and husband at, and at the Army's Medal of Honor web page.

God bless our troops for keeping America safe, secure, and free.
