Romney Endorsed By 42 Medal Of Honor Recipients

By Zach Schwartz

Today Mitt Romney announced the endorsements of 42 Medal of Honor recipients including Thomas Norris who was one of three Navy SEALs to receive the Medal of Honor for their actions during the Vietnam War and Leo Thorsness, who spent six years in captivity in North Vietnam as a prisoner of war.

In a statement released by the campaign, Thorsness said he believed Romney was the right man to lead the nation because he understands the needs of America’s soldiers and that healthcare will be easy to obtain under his leadership for those fighting for our country overseas.

In the announcement, Romney thanked all the veterans for their support but also their service to the nation.

“Of all the heroes that have served in our armed forces, only a few have had the great privilege of receiving the Medal of Honor,” Romney said. “They are the best of us all, and their dedication to our freedoms and their fellow servicemen and women serves as a shining example to every American.”

    The first name listed, John Baker, may indeed be John Baca. Regrettably, John F Baker, MoH, passed away on 20 January 2012. You may desire to fact check this point. Also, one does not “win” the Medal of Honor. It is not a contest. One “receives” it. Thankyou.

    Mea culpa. I read the word “win” in another article. Oh. Tom Hunder should be Tom Hudner.
