    We lost our most decorated warrior yesterday, Col. Robert L. Howard passed away from cancer. He is the only man in modern times to be put in for the Medal of Honor for three seperate actions and only the law kept him from receiving more than one. A true warrior who was also a great man. Rest in peace Bob and we will see you on the other side!
