An American Hero moves on, COL(R) Robert L. Howard 1939-2009

     COL(R) Robert L. Howard passed away on the 23rd of December 2009.  To my regret I didn’t know until today when a friend of mine who had served with COL Howard in the 80’s informed me.  This is a man who was nominated for the Medal of Honor three times, for three different actions.  A True Hero that the world barely notices his passing.   More inportant things to do I guess.  Fortunately there were a few prior war correspondents with enough clout that knew him and were able to push his story into the news (clip below).  Even if it was just for a minute.  If they can, so can I.  Thank you for your remarkable service COL Howard and I’ll see you on the high ground.
