Mark Levin just gave a stirring tribute to John Finn on his radio show. 15 Medals Of Honor were awarded to those at Pearl Harbor. Only 4 of the recipients survived the war.

I am particularly touched to know that Lt. Finn was an aviation ordnance technician, which was my MOS while in the Marines.

Lifford French is from Athens, Alabama. What is nice is he owned some property which proved valuable years later - he made a fortune including selling several acres to Wal-Mart.

The Spokane story once again shows how humble and matter-of-fact those folks are.
