|From Bob, July 2015 "I met
Woody Williams at a Veterans event in Charleston WV.
He received the Medal of Honor for his actions on Iwo Jima when he took a
flame thrower and lead his squad to take out 6 bunkers. He said
'someone had to take charge and take out the
bunkers and it fell on me so we did it.'
We had a very nice talk about WW2 and the treatment of Veterans.
He asked me about my service when I told him about Combat Trackers he was very impressed."
