I shook his hand at my front door when he was running for congress and chatted for a bit.
A mere mortal doing super human feats.
I was in awe and praised him highly to his face, and of course, voted for him.

Read his book in 2007 ;

"House to House: A Soldier's Memoir" by Sgt. David Bellavia

It was an excellent read, "“They used to say that the real war will never get in the books. Here it does, stunningly.”

I salute him, no doubt a real hero. Hope he has higher political aspirations.
