Charles Kettles, heroic Vietnam veteran from Ypsilanti, Michigan, awarded the Medal of Honor | Eclectablog


The dashing young man in the photo above is Lieutenant Colonel (Ret.) Charles S. Kettles. LTC Kettles, who lives in Ypsilanti, Michigan, was awarded the Medal of Honor yesterday at a White House ceremony. His story is extraordinary. Here’s an excerpt from President Obama’s remarks: May 15, 1967, started as a hot Monday morning. Soldiers from the 101st Airborne were battling hundreds of heavily armed North Vietnamese in a rural riverbed. Our men were outnumbered.

This year my prognostication skills have been not just tested or bent, but shattered into small pieces. I have been so wrong about national politics and the events that surround them that it has made me a little gun-shy, and please excuse that pun.
