My vote! – A True American Hero – Chris Mintz–abc-news-topstories.html#

Here’s my vote for the next person to receive a Presidential civilian commendation on the level of the Medal of Honor. Chris Mintz, unarmed, yet a trained veteran, had the presence of mind to warn others of the danger of the shooter at Umpqua Community College, and urge them to get out of the area. Then, with complete disregard for that fact that he was unarmed and up against an active shooter, he went back into the room and bare handedly attacked the shooter while taking seven shots that could have gone to killing other persons. This is the true meaning of courage and heroism for Americans of all walks of life to look up to and aspire to. It is not the braggadocio of packing a gun, not the swagger of the step, nor the backing of a gang, nor the picking on the weak and helpless. It is the matter of fact being trained to do a job and then doing that job to the best of one’s ability despite risk to life and limb. That’s what heroism and military training mean to me. Thanks. Chris for your great service to others.
