My Dad, since deceased, was a member of the Chosin Few, and served with the 1st Marines. I recall his re-occurring nightmares of his experience at the Chosin. Being 8 or 10 years old and hearing your Dad screaming in the middle of the night is a disturbing experience, and something I'll never forget. Getting him to talk to me about his experiences was like pulling teeth, but became a cleansing process for him and taught me, at a young age, to respect and appreciate what our vets have gone through. God Bless you all.

Jack R. York was my father, He was a radio announcer before going in the army at 18 years old. Went to Vietnam and in 1963 left, and was stationed in Fort Lewis Washington where he met my mom Lou. Then went to join the exercise Desert Strike in Arizona. He died in a car train wreck, and there were a total of four men in the car on May 5th 1964. He was shotgun. One person survived. Who don't know!? He had just two months to get out of the military, and then I was born on the second of November. I found his family about a year ago according to one of his siblings its been put away for so long. Made me feel like people do forget, and the one person who never knew him (me) thinks of him every day of his life. I feel I brought him to life again with a tribute page so please stop by sometime and visit. Its about my father Jack and my children, my pets, and I. His picture is the first you will see. Thank you. It is the URL I have listed.

Thank you for this sight. My Grandfather gave his life in the Korean War. He was not a great war hero, but my hero. He loved his country. It is his actions and selfless action like the ones I have read on this sight that inspired me to enlist in the U.S. Navy. God Bless America!!!

I shipped out to Vietnam in January, 1966 assigned to the 2nd of the 13th Artillery. When I arrived in Saigon I was interviewed and then reassigned to the 27th DPU due to my previous experience with computers and programming. I spent 13 months in country and was awarded the Bronze Star Medal for Meritorious Achievement in Ground Operations Against Hostile Forces in the Republic of Vietnam. I don't consider myself a hero, but I am a hard worker and was very flattered to receive this medal. Thank you for rooting out the imposters and exposing them for what they are.

Thanks, My father, Harold M. Burke, was also wounded at Heart Break Cross Roads. The second group of soldiers sent out to cut the fenceline under intense machine gun and mortars and bitter weather. He was one of two wounded but manage to return and report their success. Stars and Stripes reported this and we have a copy that was in my Mothers belongings. Perhaps yours and mine may have known each other. What a great generation they were. Harold & my Mother divorced when I was six and I was raised by my step-father and took his name. I was not aware of Harold's service and wounds until recent. My sister and I have covered a lot of the Indian Heads history since learning of our fathers past. Thanks for the website.

Bravo! This is a wonderful tribute. It's very sad that many of these men had passed away before receiving their well deserved Metal of Honor. I had tears in my eyes through the entire presentation. Tomorrow afternoon, in Denver, there is a screening of a movie at the Denver Film Society which is a sold out event. I'm glad I bought my tickets early. It is directed by Lane Nishikawa, called "Only The Brave". I best bring my hankie if it is anything like your site. Thank you.

Our school, Saint Cloud High School, Saint Cloud, Florida, had an extraordinary visitor on November 8, 2005. SFC Sammy L. Davis, a Congressional Medal of Honor recipient visited our school to talk to our students about duty, honor and Country. SFC Davis talked about his experiences in Vietnam in 1967 and how he overcame the greatest of adversities to aid his fellow soldiers on the battlefield. His extraordinary courage in the face of eminent loss of life earned him the Country's highest honor, the Congressional Medal of Honor. SFC Davis spoke to over 600 captivated students with sincerity, clarity, and wisdom that I have personally never witnessed. He is a true American who cares about the youth of our Nation. Our gratitude and appreciation of his visit can not be expressed in words. Thank you once again SFC Davis for your service to our Nation!

Was at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C. on Monday where I visited the Military Medical Family Assistance Center and had lunch in the Dining Facility where the wounded, that can get around, also have lunch. The wounded personnel have great attitudes. The overall most important item they need are phone cards. The phone companies give them cards with very limited times but they need to be able to talk longer than a few minutes. Especially with the Thanksgiving and Christmas season coming soon.

To make sure items get to the Military Medical Family Assistance Center use the following address:
Walter Reed Army Medical Center
Medical Family Assistance Center
Building 2, Room 3E01, 3rd Floor
6900 Georgia Avenue NW
Washington D.C. 20307
The Medical Family Assistance Center will send an acknowledgement of receipt and a thank you. No other activity will get the items you send.

Below is a list of needed items:
Phone Calling Cards (extended hours if possible/
Sweats, Medium size (top & bottom) (they have plenty of large and Xlarge/ Cameras, Disposable/ Body Wash/ Shampoo/ Deodorant, both male and female/ Writing Pads, 5x7 lined/ Identification Card Holders with neck band/ Umbrellas/ Pillows, Physical Therapy type/ Pens & Pencils/ Hi-lighters/ Socks, black/ Caps/ Duffle Bags/Luggage/ Portable CD Players/ Blackberry/PDA (for eye/ear injuries)/

I saw the article on the P.T.K. Golden Newsbriefs about the paper Pamla wrote concerning medal fraud, and I was amazed to find out people actually LIE about being a medal recipient ~ how cruel and callous to pretend to be something you are obviously not! I applaud your efforts in getting legislation passed to prosecute these imposters. I will contact my rep & congressman and request they support the bill. I am very impressed with your website and have added it to my favorites list, not only to just check and see what's going on, but I'm starting to research my family history and there are several links that will assist me ~ Thanks for all the great information!!

Great Site I would like to honor my hero, mentor and idol, 1ST SGT Reed Buchanan US Army (retired) Dad served for 21 years (1935-1956) He fought in WW2 in the 25th division 65th Combat Engineers and saw action at Pearl Harbor, Guadalcanal and the Solomon Islands He passed this past April at age 88. He was a good honest hardworking and decent man as well as a loving husband, father and Grandfather. The greatest honor I ever got was being told I was just like my Dad. To me there is no higher honor than that. I would also like to mention my Grandfather SGT John Kiely 304th infantry 76th division WW1 - my great grandfather PVT Ellis Etters 13th Pennsylvania Cavalry - Civil War (and his 5 brothers too!) and my GGGGrandfather Andre Etters Pennsylvania Milita Revolutionary War. I'm proud that their blood flows in my veins. But I feel that I am not worthy. Thanks for hearing me out.

I am amazed, truly amazed. As a German it is kind of hard to be proud of war heroes for obvious reasons. Although war is always the wrong choice, I believe in the ARMY very strongly and I'm glad for those MOH heroes ( amongst many other never mentioned heroes ). I am glad you make sure they're not forgotten for their actions are beyond camaraderie and brotherhood. I thank all of you for your courage, believe and strong will.

Doug, Thank you for the Home of Heroes web site. This past Saturday, 9-17-05 I was honored to participate in the rededication of the grave site of Charles H. Seston in New Albany, Indiana. Sgt. Seston was a Civil War recipient of the Medal of Honor for his actions at Winchester, VA. Don Morfe, who is becoming legendary for his efforts in locating the burial sites of the MOH recipients, was instrumental in obtaining a new stone for Sgt. Seston and an official MOH tombstone was installed and dedicated on the 17th. Our country is fortunate to have people like Doug Sterner and Don Morfe who really care about preserving our history. Keep up the good work !! PG

In a time where one has to fight to get help for a disabled vet by a government that keeps turning its back, it is always refreshing to hear when somewhere in the United States, that justice is served. It is hard enough for those who have gone to battle to receive what they deserve, it is even harder for them to stomach the likes of those who boast of glory in battle who never even left US soil.

I think your logic is flawed in wanting to allow legislation to prosecute people who falsely claim to have military medals. you forget that those who died fighting were fighting for freedom, in a free country we can say what we want even if it is a lie. i have the highest respect for those who fight in our wars my father is building a million dollar memorial in our hometown for those who died. i think you should fight a different fight, like the fight to stop war.

I would like to say thanks for a great site, I have been here quite a lot and will continue to return often, However in reading some of the comments in this guestbook I've seen it stated to many times that he is the winner of the MOH, or other medals, I don't ever remember during the 21.5 years I served in the military of there ever being a contest in which someone could win a medal of any kind, I am sure if it was awarded, it was EARNED.
I just learned of a JUDGE that was displaying 2 MOH award's on his wall in his chambers, From what I understand it can only be issued one time and he was not even awarded that, also just recently a WW2 vet wore the MOH to a ceremony that he purchased in a pawn shop, I think scum like this should be put on a plane & sent to Iraq direct into the combat zone for one year for every MOH they claim. They are a disgrace to our country, our military and most of all to the men or women who earn and are awarded the CONGRESSIONAL MEDAL OH HONOR

Many thanks for Doug's help in busting another MOH imposter in Caseville, Michigan. A mr. Kovich masqueraded many times both in army uniforms and naval uniforms thru the years displaying not only the MOH but a Navy cross, silver star, bronze star, ect. It is because of this website that concerned vets contacted Doug and were directed from there to law enforcement officials. The current outcome of Mr. Kovich is pending. This can be viewed at the local paper, www.michigansthumb.com  and reading the stories or searching for his name.

In 1996 My wife and I attended the MOH annual meeting in Philadelphia, Pa. In which the Bob Hope attend and the Bob Hope award was presented. I was able to buy a book with all the MOH citations and had the great privilege to have several recipients sign their citations. One particular MOH recipient brought home the true meaning of the Medal. As he signed my book he looked at me and grabbed my arm and said "remember one thing, thousands of men did as much and more then me and no one will ever know what they did".

His name William Edward Harman. No longer on this earth, never will be for gotten. I am a daughter, being small at times ,I can remember my dad talking of his time in war, tears would fill his eyes. Not alot, just small talk. My dad enjoyed more than any thing going to the VA. Vets meetings. A wonderful dad, miss so much. To all of our Hero's that served, is still serving, ones who lost loved ones. May God be with all. Thank you every soldier. God Bless.

There aren't enough Web sites or other means that can ever do justice to all the fine men from this great country, (especially those who made the supreme sacrifice), these men are a special breed. This site is another welcome undertaking so our loved ones who came home or went to our heavenly father are being remembered. In one week we will be publicly showing our gratitude all across this nation, and I would ask that everyone get out there on Memorial Day, shake the hand of a Veteran and just say "THANK YOU", those two little words go along way; I am a Korean Vet from the Chosin Resevoir era, a member of the Chosin Few who survived that winter. Every conflict where we have been involved, there have been many lives given, but we don't want them to be forgotten, ever.

Frank was a member of Co.K 120th Infantry, 30th Infantry Division and was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor for his bravery and heroism at Malmedy, Belgium in The Battle of the Bulge. I count it one of the highest of life's privileges to call him a personal friend, even to this day. All of them are due great honor, but, Frank is an exceptional man.

Thanks for providing this great forum in which to thank the heroes in our lives. This is a follow up to my entry in the 2004 guestbook dated September 28, 2004 in which I honor my father, Malcolm Little, Sr. for his sacrifices and service in the Army's 4th Division on Utah Beach. Just remembered that dad traveled to France in 1995 to receive a special medal and recognition for his service from the French government. Dad will be 90 years young in August of this year, and he is still going strong. As mentioned in my previous guestbook post, he sacrificed a promising professional baseball career to serve our great country. After supposedly retiring from many years of employment, dad returned to his hometown of Pembroke, Maine to serve as a Selectman for the Township, a leader in the local American Legion post, and a faithful member of the Masonic Lodge. Dad is truly part of the great generation to which we commonly refer nowadays, as a result of which he has always be! en an inspiration and role model to me. Even in supposed retirement, dad was and is faithfully serving others and we are very proud of him. The physical wounds in dad's right arm never deterred him from an exemplary, honorable, and faithful life.
We love you, dad, and are very proud of you.

I was stationed at the Binh Thuy Army Post - 1971 & 1972. BTAP was contiguous to the Navy helicopter outfit. It was on 16 April 1972 that we underwent attack that set off some of the RVN ammunition dump. We (the Army) lost one man KIA and 14 or so WIA during this attack. I was a little surprised that there was not at least a few comments about the Army. But we were really there. I remember the Black Ponies and I have some really good slides of their OV10s fully armed at the Air Force Base near us. We did enjoy working with the Navy types.

I've read the articles from the Marine Corps Times and I can relate to seeing medals and reading stories that seem unbelievable and out of what I remember as it was. I was just a ordinary Marine doing my job and I cringe at fake and preposterous stories, one such was in the Military Magazine Jan. 2005, Cpl. Dean B. Geick stated the 7th Marine Regiment was in the 3rd Marine Division, I wonder if he had a lapse of memory or if he really was the one in the photo.

Does anyone remember John A Bentley? His nickname was Tex. John died on Iwo Jima, March 27th 1945, he was a flame thrower, John was also a paratrooper, and a corporal in the 5th division Marine's. Please if anyone thinks they remember him e-mail me. John was born in Kittanning, Pa. He was my uncle, his whole family is now gone but for a brother who I wish to try to get some type of info for as today this day he can't rest thinking of Johnny. His death was a nightmare for the whole family none of them ever got over it, and the pain was past on to the next generation as well.

I just got my first letter from KWVM (the cause) so I'm not too far into what's available; I'm sure I'll be back many times. What I have seen is very interesting. Maybe here I might find information on " The Frozen Chosin" and possibly locate some of the men from K Co 3rd Bn 31st Regt 7th Div; with a couple of exceptions all I know is I am one of the 385 out of the 31st Regt (3100 men to a Regt) who made it out of there. After Dec 2, I never saw any of the guys I was with in the 1st Plt machinegun squad; just recently I heard of a couple possibilities I intend to peruse to find anyone or learn of what happened to them.
Pro Patria and stay warm John

I want to thank all the veterans of World War II who sacrificed so much to protect freedom throughout the world. The History behind the 442nd. Division is even more extraordinary considering the racial feelings of the time and the treatment your families received. I am Pleased to hear that The 442nd. Division (Go For Broke) is considering being part of Next Years "Weekend of Heroes". This venue is a great place to tell the story and help Honor the 442nd. Div. and the Sacrifices that these great Americans made in the name of freedom. A freedom that at the time of there sacrifice they were not able to enjoy.

Thank you for the most inspirational site I have seen. You lovingly tell the stories of the all the soldiers. I am the sister of S/Sgt John Gary Gertsch. He was my hero long before he died and he continues to be my hero today. I miss him terribly but his love for his "brothers" out weighed anything else in his life.
