The men that earned the MoH deserve more than a piece of metal and some ribbon in my opinion. What's even more sad is the fact that he had to "hawk" his medals to some collector to afford to live. We should take better care of our vets.
I'm a Vietnam Disabled Vet but I'm almost ashamed to say so.
Nothing dishonorable about serving your country, it's certainly more than I can say for myself. Bear in mind that most deaths in the wars before antibiotics, rapid transport, and medics were caused by disease. Those men are still honorable because it is about your actions, not medals. Anyone that believes you should be shameful for being disabled should be beaten for their treasonous tongue.
