A Most Unassuming Hero

Bill Crawford receiving the Medal of Honor from Pres. Ronald Reagan
Why did it take so long?  Follow the link and read the last large paragraph

For Memorial Day, from the Wharton Leadership Digest, here is the story of William "Bill" Crawford, who worked as a lowly janitor at the Air Force Academy for many years, attracting little notice or interest, until a cadet made the discovery that Bill had been awarded the Medal of Honor in World War II (h/t The Patriot Post).

Be sure to read the final couple of paragraphs to learn an additional amazing twist to Mr. Crawford's story.

16,354,000 men & women served in the U.S. Armed Forces during WW II.  464 were awarded the Medal of Honor.
