Re: Taiha and Jo are very similar

Brave men indeed. I'm not denigrating the Purple Heart, which is awarded for combat wounds. Those who have been awarded it have suffered terribly and are deserving of our respect and gratitude. The Victoria Cross and the MOH are a much different category and the heroism involved is beyond belief. These two men demonstrated not only valor, but a selfless conduct that defies mere courage.

You are rightfully proud of these warriors and your warrior heritage.
