The real Rambo

Rambo has nothing on this guy.
Check out his list of awards. :eek:

For his absolute selflessness and courage under fire, Howard was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor.
Promoted to 1st Lieutenant, Howard was wounded 14 times in a single 54-month period during Vietnam. In addition to the Medal of Honor, Howard also held the Distinguished Service Cross, a Silver Star, four Legion of Merits, eight Purple Hearts, three Meritorious Service meals, four Bronze Stars, three Air Medals, a Joint Service Commendation, seven Army Commendation medals, the Combat Infantry Badge and several other awards. In short, he probably had to pin his dress coat to his shirt to prevent it from falling off from the sheer weight of his medals.

Now that's what heros should be.

Not some dude that throws a round ball thru a net in air conditioning, and complains about it.
