Wednesday Hero

U.S. Army Air Forces
On April 30, 143 airmen, after a 70 year wait, were finally awarded the POW Medal they had earned. The 143 airmen were held captive in the Wauwilermoos prison camp in Switzerland. Of the 143, only eight were able to attend the ceremony:
 Lt. Col. James Misuraca
 Maj. James Moran 
 First Lt. Paul Gambaiana
 First Lt. James Mahon 
 Tech. Sgt. Alva Moss
 Staff Sgt. John Fox
 Sgt. William Blackburn 
 Sgt. George Thursby

 These brave men and women sacrifice so much in their lives just so others may get to enjoy freedom. For that I am proud to call them Hero.

 Those Who Say That We're In A Time When There Are No Heroes, They Just Don't Know Where To Look
