Tango Mike Mike

I want to spread the story of a man in rare and select company: Medal of Honor recipients.

He is Master Sergeant Roy P. Benevidez, Vietnam veteran:

Besides telling his amazing story, the 6min video also explains the origin of the call sign "Tango Mike Mike"

I received it from the commander of the Austin Chapter of the Military Order of the Purple Heart via my friend John in Marble Falls, TX. John is an avid Jeeper, patriot, and all around great guy to hang out with. He and the San Antonio Chapter of Wheelers for the Wounded are organizing a Meal for Heroes on 20 FEB, birthday of Georg Washington, whose image adorns the Purple Heart.

You can learn more about Wheelers for the Wounded, and even pitch in if you are local to San Antonio:
