5th Special Forces based at Fort Campbell, KYFort Campbell, KY – Bob Howard grew up in Opelika, Alabama, in a house on a hill accessed by a single road. At the bottom of the hill living in two houses on either side of the road were two families, each with several boys that were both older and bigger than him.

Bob Howard was a smart boy. He knew the odds were not in his favor if he challenged the boys, so every day on his way home from school he would devise a different plan to get past the boys and up the hill to his home without getting into trouble.

5th Special Forces based at Fort Campbell, KYFort Campbell, KY – The Medal of Honor is our Nation’s highest military honor awarded for valor.  It is for conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of life above and beyond the call of duty, and is awarded by the president of the United States on behalf of Congress.

To someone who does not know the true meaning of the award, it may be viewed as merely a medal that hangs around one’s neck, but it is much more than that. It is prestigious and comes at great sacrifice and selflessness.
