  1. I am surprised this took this long. Mr. Rescorla was also in the Battle of Ia Drang, and co-author of “We Were Soldiers Once ..and Young”. And I recall seeing stories on TV about him, and his actions that day at the WTC, a couple of years after the 9/11 attack when a book about him, “Heart of a Soldier” was published.

  2. Weeks before the twin towers attack he struggled to prepare the buildings for such an attack. He was met with resistance and skeptics who doubted his concerns. He proved to be prescient.

  3. I’m not trying to be critical, but why not the Presidential Medal of Freedom, which is considered the highest civilian honor? Here are a few previous Presidential Medal of Freedom winners. Ellen DeGeneres, Kareem Abdul Jabbar, Bill Cosby, Robert De Niro, Bruce Springsteen, Barbra Streisand. The list is long with selfish, self centered, elites. OK, maybe I am being a bit critical.
