Cpl Jason Dunham, USMC, is to be awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor for sacrificing his own life to protect his fellow Marines.

Respect of the utmost order to that young man. There are times when the human race really does astound you.

That story reminds me of an old folk song about a British soldier in Northern Ireland who did the same sort of thing in a train station to save the gathered women and children and 'they' still hated him for it.

RIP

Some things transcend national boundaries.
I wonder how many protesters were at Cpl Dunhams funeral, holding signs that read: "thank god for dead soldiers."?

I are trying to find the singer / title of this song so that I can replace a lost copy for my ex-military father... hopefully by Christmas!

Please can you or anyone else help?
