I just finished reading House to House by S/Sgt. David Bellavia, about service in the Iraq War.
I could not put it down. Partially, because of my time with A Company 2-2 Infantry, but because
of the sheer impact of this man. All I know of Medal of Honor recipients is what I have read in
some official narrative. This guy bares his soul in the book. He has humbled my opinion of my service record.
I feel honored to have served in the same outfit and Company, but I have to say, he brought back memories of the men
I had the honor to serve with. We had some Giants in their own right, such as Col. Ward, First Sgt. Willingham, and
SSGT Buxton. These were men of Leadership. I was just a skinny wet nosed kid, but I would followed them anywhere.
God bless all those that serve with honor.
