A salute to Sgt. Paul Smith

"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." —Donald Rumsfeld

"It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived." —George S. Patton

This week, in observance of Sgt. Smith's birthday on September 24, the Minnesota Organization of Bloggers urges you to learn about this true American hero, and thank God that such men lived.
