Remember Gordon and Shughart

If you're an American and you don't know who Gary Gordon and Randy Shughart are, you should educate yourself about them.

Medal of HonorIf you're an American and you don't know how the circumstances came about in which they earned this country's highest honor, you should educate yourself about that.

Reading this would be a good way to perform that self-education.

When you know who Gordon and Shughart are and how they died, and when you've learned who's responsible for the lack of meaningful armor support and overall firepower on scene at that time, you should consider what lessons ought to be drawn from their heroic deaths — lessons that are incredibly relevant today, this week, this month, this year.

God bless and rest them, and all their comrades and forebears who bought with their precious blood the liberty we enjoy and so often take for granted.
